Why You Need a Retaining Wall

Retaining walls can be used to prevent erosion. Erosion is a powerful force that has the potential to carry soil, by wind or rain, to unwanted areas. Areas of your property losing topsoil are being gradually degraded. This loss of soil can be detrimental to your plants, shrubs, flowers and trees. Roots can have difficulty growing at the rate of erosion, which means there is less material for the roots to hold onto. Less soil can also mean fewer nutrients reaching the plants. This can lead to the plants becoming dried out, malnourished, or worse, upending in heavy winds or storms.

Retaining walls help to prevent erosion by creating a strong structure that will slow or impede the momentum of the soil or water. This technique is especially helpful in areas that have a slight slope between 50 degrees to 70 degrees. These walls are also useful for dividing raised flower beds in an attractive manner. A beautifully sculpted retaining wall can keep your property clean (by eliminating erosion) and allow your landscaping and gardens to be well-maintained. Stop erosion on your property by installing or fixing a retaining wall in Gainesville, FL with Evergreen Lawn Care.
