Stabilize Your Property with a Retaining Wall

Posted in Retaining Walls

Winter can bring high moisture levels that can cause erosion on your property. This is especially true for lots that contain hills and slopes. When the soil erodes, it can ruin your landscaping efforts and even damage your home. One of the most affordable and aesthetically pleasing options to stabilize your property is with the addition of a paver retaining wall.

Benefit of Using Pavers for Retaining Walls

When it comes to stabilizing soil, you need a solid material for your retaining wall. While wood and natural stone boulders can both be used for erosion controlling walls, there are some benefits of using pavers, including:

  • Durable. Pavers will last for many years, unlike wood that can rot when in contact with soil.
  • Strength. Like natural stone boulders, pavers are strong enough to handle the heavy load of slope erosion, offering a solid foundation to stabilize your property. Many pavers are interlocking, offering even more stability.
  • Affordable. Pavers can be much less expensive than some other forms of stone. You can chose from marble or travertine pavers or man-made options like concrete or brick.
  • Beautiful. Pavers create a uniform, beautiful retaining wall that is also functional. There are many different sizes, shapes and colors to choose from.

If you want to protect your property from erosion damage this winter, consider adding a new retaining wall. There are many different styles and options that can add curb appeal to your home while adding erosion protection. Talk to your local contractor that offers paver retaining wall construction to discuss the best options for your home and budget before those winter storms start rolling in.
