If your landscape has sharp inclines that cause standing water, don’t stand for it – because standing water can damage your property. Let your pros at Scott Design and Construction custom design and build a Drainage Retaining Wall to ensure proper drainage and stability for years to come.
What are Drainage Retaining Walls?
Simply put, a drainage retaining wall serves to keep soil in place. Commonly used for landscapes that feature small hills, they act as a necessary barrier to prevent the soil from sliding forward. They are especially vital during the transitions to rainy seasons, as rain can exacerbate soil degradation. For many homes, drainage retaining walls are necessary in order to ensure the wellbeing of your house and the features in your yard.
Scott Design and Construction offers a variety of styles, sizes and materials for drainage retaining walls to meet your needs and requirements. They can range from twelve inches to twelve feet and are constructed of natural stone or wall block.
Benefits of drainage retaining walls
• Prevention of soil erosion. Erosion is ever-prevalent in any landscape, whether due to wind or water. This makes retaining walls all the more important, especially if your landscape does not feature a lot of trees and shrubs to hold the soil in place. In addition to providing necessary support to the soil, the walls also help decrease the surface runoff by reducing sharper gradients. This, in turn, reduces the speed at which water travels over the surface and thereby reduces erosion.
• Flood control. Drainage and retaining walls provide effective flood control in the form of water drainage aimed at preventing flooding. Channels and drainage pipes can be integrated into the construction to provide further measures for proper drainage and water control. The walls also reduce the gradient through terracing, which allows water to soak into the soil rather than run off the surface.
• Adds functional space to your yard. While hills and mounds can be attractive features, they also tend to take up precious space and prove difficult to landscape. By creating terraces using a sequence of drainage retaining walls, you can add more functional space to your yard, which can then be used for planting. Terracing also creates an attractive facade for your yard, which can be used to showcase different features such as patios and gardens.
• Enhanced aesthetic appeal. As mentioned, drainage retaining walls can prove to be attractive structures. For example, the contrast of a concrete or stone wall alongside a natural landscape can work wonders for a landscape. With the variety of materials we offer at Scott Design and Construction, your drainage retaining wall can flow naturally with other features in your yard for a beautiful end result!
