Retaining Walls For Every Area of Your Landscape

While the winter season is long in New England, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Spring is around the corner, which means our team at MAX13 Construction is starting to vision retaining walls and hardscape designs for days. With all of the excitement about heading back outdoors, it also means that it is time to roll up the sleeves.

Your landscape should be more than lush green grass and perfectly hedged bushes. With the incorporation of stone walls, you will not only increase your home’s value, but you’ll also add visual interest and possible added usable space. In high-demand, here is a look at how the addition of retaining walls can be useful anywhere on your property.

 

 

Backyard Retaining Walls

 

 

Often, stone walls are used as property lines or as a way to divide space. However, these walls are not only the perfect solution for division but also gardening opportunities. By carefully choosing the ideal varieties of plants, you can create a naturally blended look that enhances your outdoor feel. For example, creeping vines will cascade down the wall creating a waterfall effect of flora. Complemented with clematis or trumpet vines, you will quickly have the addition of color through beautiful blooms.

However, species like hosta, fern, or boxwood provide a cleaner, more manageable look. Or, perhaps, you could use the space to grow that vegetable garden you also dreamed of having. No matter what look you’re going for, be sure to do a little research as some species grow quickly and may cover more of your wall than you are hoping for.

Walkways

 

 

Possible the most common location for retaining walls is along walkways. Guiding your guests to and from your driveway to the front door, or perhaps into your backyard, this element adds functional curb appeal. When dealing with walkways, you will always want to opt for smaller, more compact flowering bushes. By doing so, you will obtain a cleaner look that allows your guests to easily navigate to and from easily.

Front Yard Landscaping

 

 

Similar to walkways, walls along your front landscape can be used for various reasons. From providing visual interest to creating a flat surface on an otherwise sloped landscape, these walls are often front and center. Because of that, you want to be sure that your landscape is on par. While there is no right and wrong, you want to consider the same concerns addressed in walkway walls.
