If your home is on a slightly sloped terrain and you want the surrounding slopes to be usable it is a good idea to set up retaining walls. A lot of planning goes into designing retaining walls that can hold in the soil on sloped surfaces. From simple rocks balanced on each other to intricate patterns that makeover a sloped landscape, Retaining Wall Ideas can be of different kinds.
These walls for slopes have many benefits, but the biggest benefit you get is that all the area near your house gets used. Once a retaining wall is set up the soil remains firmly on the slope, without the risk of it tumbling down to the lower slopes. With the stability of the wall helping the slope remain in place you can set up pretty hanging ivy plants, or just arrange a few potted plants on the top of the wall. If you have an area of slopes on all sides get a retaining wall constructed around it and then set up the center with pavers. With some investment you can have your very own enclosed space right near your home. You can just use stone chips and some earth to fill up the center and plant some pretty bushes. If you plan to get a retaining wall set up call in an experienced engineer to get the land measurement and planning done properly according to the soil type, elevation, angle of the slope, and other parameters. Stones in different designs, such as rectangular, asymmetrical shapes, or uneven block shapes, can be laid together to give a distinctive look to the retaining wall.
