Newnan Landscape Supply Company | Retaining Walls | Vining Stone

With some of the rain we have received in the past couple of weeks, we are reminded of the practicality of using retaining walls to protect your landscaping.  Many elements, such as wind, snow, and rain can totally demolish a property.  Especially if your landscaping is sloped at all.  We haven’t had any snow so far this year, but we have certainly endured quite a bit of wind and rain.  There is nothing worse than spending a great deal of money, time, and energy into perfecting a spectacular yard only to see it destroyed overnight by a big downpour.  And that is why recommend incorporating retaining walls into your sloped landscaping to protect the property.

What are retaining walls?

Retaining walls are simply structures that are built to hold back earth that would otherwise move down.  They are used to stabilize slopes and also to provide useful areas of earth at different elevations, which is what you see in terraced areas.

The great thing about retaining walls is on top of its functionality purposes, they also add to the beauty of your landscaping.  If you have ever seen a terraced garden, you know what I mean – simply gorgeous!

What material is used in retaining walls?

There are so many ways to build retaining walls that we couldn’t list them all here.  You can find several different ideas on HGTV’s and Better Homes and Garden’s website.  There are quite a few options when it comes to materials for retaining walls, but one of our favorites is stone. Fieldstone or flagstone can be used to create a stunning retaining wall for your landscaping. You can see some great ideas here on our website.
