Retaining walls can be constructed in many ways with many different material options. They can be constructed as a raised planting bed, they can be terraced to correct erosion issues along a slope, they might include steps, and most importantly they can provide proper water flow away from the house.
Retaining walls can be constructed using a variety of materials like retaining wall block, boulders, limestone, timbers and more. There are materials to serve both the aesthetic preference and necessary function to meet a homeowner’s specific needs.
Before calling a foundation repair company, call a landscaping company to see if a retaining wall could fix the water issues.
