Retaining Walls in Charlotte, NC
With all the materials available for constructing a retaining wall on your property, why does concrete emerge as the best solution? Here are a few ways that homeowners in Charlotte are choosing a sturdy concrete retaining wall:
The primary reason many choose retaining walls are often needed in places where extra support is needed to prevent the soil from moving downhill with natural erosion, or even with the occasional seasonal flooding. The most basic function of a retaining wall is to provide a slope to retain land from sliding downward, against gravity. A retaining wall can serve this purpose for your driveway or your house. It also allows you to level our areas in your yard, or for an intended walkway or driveway.
Retaining walls also help slow the flow of an intense rain and in this way, they can protect your budget from the cost of utility for your gardening and lawn care too. At Charlotte Concrete & Paving, we also provide concrete retaining walls as an effective way to prevent flood waters from damaging your home leaving you with expensive repair costs. In Charlotte we do occasionally have those afternoon “gully-washers” but with a sturdy and durable retainer wall, you have an added defense! When water and leafy debris float down the slopes on your property, a retaining wall will direct the water towards the streets flow away and away from your home.
Besides protecting your home from some weather disasters, concrete retaining walls add some extraordinary beauty to your landscape! Charlotte home owners can use retainer walls to show off plants, and may even choose to stagger the concrete fixtures in order to have seating. Concrete retaining walls come in a nice variety of styles and designs so they will blend in with your other landscape features seamlessly, to your taste. They are aesthetically pleasing to the eye and create a focal point to any well maintained property. Once your retaining wall is up, it may provide several unanticipated yet practical functions.
