Retaining walls are important structures in a landscape. To make more space, slopes are usually pushed upwards and held with these walls to keep them in place. They are also ideal structures for preventing soil erosion. Additionally, they also double as seating elements within your garden or landscape. They can be built with decorative materials to enhance the aesthetic beauty of your property without compromising their main purposes of safety and protection.
Types of Retaining Wall Materials
Just because a retaining wall is meant to hold soil and keep it in place, does not mean that we can forget about how durable it should be and how appealing it should look in a certain outdoor area. In fact, these walls are one of the most noticeable parts of a landscape.

Block Retaining Walls
Concrete blocks and natural stones are popular choices for building this type of wall. Blocks are great for creating curves in walls to conform to the slope it is holding or to merely create a decorative statement. It does not require advanced masonry skills to put these up and they are also very easy to maintain. However, if you prefer a more natural retaining wall, opt for natural stone materials.
Natural Stone Retaining Walls
A stone retaining wall looks great on any type of landscape because its appeal is very close to nature. Choosing natural stone requires you to pick from a wide variety of stones with different sizes, shapes, colors, and textures. Walls made of stone may take more time to build and will require the special skills of an expert mason. The result, however, will definitely be worth the wait. A natural stone retaining wall can be used to accent and beautify your outdoor area.
