Brick and Concrete Services to Enhance Your Residential Landscaping
Have you considered using concrete to help beautify your lawn and garden this year? One of the most exciting types of home improvements you can request using this versatile building material involves adding a series of lovely terraced retaining walls to your yard. You can ask us to undertake this project for you soon. This surprisingly affordable improvement offers a great way to help showcase a garden, create a visually interesting landscape, or reduce maintenance and lawn care responsibilities.
A Variety of Stylish Concrete Terraced Retaining Walls
We install many different types of concrete terraced retaining walls for customers. These structures help to enclose the ground and prevent the erosion of a hillside. For instance, depending upon the terrain, you can request a wall built entirely from concrete, or one using concrete blocks (or bricks) and mortar. In most cases, we insert strong metal rebar and/or metal mesh inside the concrete to supply extra support. Today, a variety of techniques enable us to finish this building material using surfaces and colors selected by the customer. You can request a concrete wall designed to imitate a brick, stone, or ceramic surface.
If you’d like to install a retaining wall along a steeply sloping landscape or beside a body of water, it usually makes sense to request input from an engineer; yet in most cases, we can install purely decorative terraced retaining walls in flat or gently sloping yards relatively quickly. We level the surface and erect a wall fitting a customer’s desired specifications. Adding one (or more) of these structures to a yard may significantly change the overall appearance of the property.
Display Flowering Plants Attractively
This type of structure assists anyone desiring to draw attention to specific landscaping features. It provides a very easy way to develop an attractive planting area in the midst of a front lawn, for instance. By creating one or two elevated terraced surfaces, a property owner may ensure flowers and shrubs grown in these locations enjoy greater visibility.
Consider using this technique to showcase festive blooms. You might cultivate blossoms appealing to butterflies or humming birds in this location. We can treat the surface of the terraced concrete retaining wall to meet your unique design goals. Would you like us to create surfaces resembling rock, slate or even marble? We’ll help you accomplish this objective.
Add Aesthetic Qualities to a Front or Back Yard
For example, while a restaurant or a new residential living center might desire a small terraced retaining wall to provide a level platform for a new sign, a homeowner may employ this same technique to set apart a specific garden bed. If a flat lawn does not flatter the “curb appeal” of the residence, for instance, you might consider adding a small, prominent rose or rock gardening island. Ask us to install a terraced retaining wall to demarcate this location within the yard.
