Installing a retaining stone wall has several benefits compared to fencing and other options used to establish boundaries. Precast retaining walls are becoming extremely popular and offer a uniform look to your property.
Precast stone retaining walls come in sections and are very easy to install. They can be placed permanently or moved as the need arises. Retaining walls come in a variety of heights and thicknesses to protect against both water and other forms of debris.
A retaining stone wall creates a solid boundary that prevents flooding and also prevents mud and sludge from creeping on your property if too much rain causes soil to shift. Sections of retaining stone wall can be placed along low lying areas near roadways that are prone to flooding. Retaining walls can be placed next to streams, rivers, ponds, and lakes or wherever flooding may occur.
As water moves in and recedes or flows along a specific course, it takes valuable top soil with it. Placing a retaining wall along the perimeter of your property will prevent precious top soil from being carried away with the current of water. While the soil may build up along the edges of the retaining wall, it can easily be raked back and spread throughout the area.
With a retaining wallin place, debris is kept to a minimum. Trees and other objects that could be blown in or carried by currents of water are kept outside of the perimeter, reducing damage that might occur to your buildings and other items located on your property.
