What to Know About Retaining Walls

Retaining Wall

Retaining walls are integrated to hold back earth and water, and can be a beautiful and functional element to your space.


A retaining wall is a hardscaping feature installed to hold back earth or water. Retaining walls are an aesthetically pleasing and functional option for residential and commercial property. They can increase the value of your home while being environmentally friendly and durable. Retaining walls come in a wide array of designs, flexible to your specific property desires and needs.


How do They Increase Home Value?


Retaining walls, like many home improvement projects, increase the value of your home. This is because they add versatility and structure to your property, allowing you to utilize your space in different ways. For instance, you could use a minor retaining wall to separate your vegetables from your flower garden or a larger retaining wall to create a barrier that increases home security.




Once your retaining wall is in place, it will require little maintenance. If a retaining wall is built correctly, it will be able to withstand tons of weight and hold back earth and water for decades on its own. Retaining walls are durable because they are commonly made of natural materials and are built to withstand harsh weather conditions. If you choose to implement a retaining wall with intricate features, it may require more maintenance. If for some reason your retaining wall isn’t responding well to the moisture and pressure of the earth, call PTG Enterprises for maintenance. We can fix damaged or leaning retaining walls, or professionally rebuild new ones correctly!
