Steps and/or retaining walls can control unruly lawns and create gorgeous designs in your lawn. Here’s how each addition helps your lawn.

How Retaining Walls Improve Landscaping

Retaining walls are powerful tools against landscaping issues. Here are just a few ways to use them.

Control Erosion– These beautiful slopes and hills can create some major erosion issues. A retaining wall is a great way to decrease erosion issues by lowering the angle of the slope on your yard.

Create Level Land- Without a retaining wall, hills and slopes can make your yard mostly un-useable. A retaining wall can help create a flat area for daily use. Landwork Contractors has a team of experienced and skilled masons who can tackle any hill or slope and create a beautiful spot to relax.

Manage Run-Off- If you’ve noticed puddles of water or marshy areas in your yard, a retaining is the answer. Using a retaining wall for run-off management will:

  • Improve the health of your yard by decreasing damp spots
  • Increase yard usage

Provide Extra Seating- Seating can be placed inside the retaining wall or the wall itself can be used for seating.

How Steps Improve Landscapes

In any landscaping, steps help your home in the following ways.

Increase Safety- Steps in your landscaping provide safe passages through your hilly, sloping, or uneven countryside.

Connect Sections of Your Landscape- A well-placed set of stairs can open up other areas of your landscaping by connecting them to your home or driveway. A backyard getaway can feel remote while still being close-by when steps are included in the design.

Direct the Flow of Traffic- Stairs can help direct foot traffic to and from areas of your home while protecting your lawn. Stairs from the street will help keep people from walking through your favorite garden spot.
