Retaining Wall Installations that are Durable, Attractive, and Custom Built for Your Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina Home
Why You Should Only Trust a Professional Landscaper to Build a Retaining Wall
A retaining wall is a complex structure. If you look at one, you might think, "I can do that. It's just a wall against the dirt!" There is more to it than that. This article in the Washington Post explains a little about the pitfalls that can happen when you're trying to build a retaining wall. The expert landscapers at Pleasant Landscapes understand how to counteract against gravity, which is constantly trying to knock over a retaining wall. They know the physics of grading, and they can determine how thick and high of a wall to build. They have experience working with different materials, and they can give you a good idea which materials will work well with your unique situation. Plus, they can give you an estimate of how much the retaining wall will cost before they begin the work. Not many things surprise our landscape team.
Before you decide to go the "cheap route" to get your retaining wall built, think about the money you will save in the long run by hiring Pleasant Landscapes. Not only will you get an expertly designed wall, but also one that is as durable as we can make it, as attractive as you want it to be, and built by smart landscapers who will treat you and your property with the utmost respect.
Retaining Walls Can Be Built of Many Different Materials
A wall is not one-size-fits-all. Each retaining wall is custom built to fit the property's specific needs. While the strength and durability of the wall are very important, Pleasant Landscapes believes the aesthetic appeal of the wall is also important. We always want to install a wall that looks good in your landscape. Retaining walls can have many different looks because they can be made out of different materials, such as:
- treated timber
- natural stone
- wall stone
- cement block
- dock piling
The Different Benefits and Purposes of Building a Retaining Wall in the Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina Area
Pleasant Landscapes has built retaining walls for a number of different reasons.
- Some property owners need to deal with a heavy grade change in their yard, so they build one wall or tiers of shorter walls.
- Some homeowners have property that contains different soil types. For instance, we have built a retaining wall against a sand dune to separate the beach from the home's backyard.
- On a different property, we built a wall to save a beautiful live oak and its root system, separating that part of soil from the lower grade of the driveway.
- Sometimes, a wall sections off a portion of the property, creating a place for a flower garden.
- Oftentimes, walls allow for more vegetation to be planted, giving the home a green, verdant atmosphere.
- Small yards benefit from a retaining wall's ability to maximize the amount of usable space.
- Most retaining walls help prevent soil erosion, keeping your landscape healthier year after year.
