Benefits of Building Retaining Walls in Your Yard

You may think retaining walls only add beauty to your front and backyard, but they actually provide many other benefits to your landscape. With the help of Payless Hardware, Rockery, and Nursery, you can receive these benefits by allowing us to do the heavy lifting:

  • Prevent Erosion and Sinkholes: When you have a home on a hill, you may face geological issues because of water runoff such as erosion or sinkholes. These may seem small at first, but if left untreated, they can do severe damage to your property.
  • Stops Floods from Occurring: During heavy downpours in San Jose, yards can fill up quickly with water. Having the retaining wall prevents water from moving soil around and keeps it locked in place to protect your home and yard.
  • Protects Your Home’s Foundation: Was your home built on a hill? Having retaining walls keeps it from sliding down, thanks to soil erosion. They also protect your foundation from becoming waterlogged and breaking down over time.
  • Low Maintenance Yard: Having garden beds in your retaining walls are a great addition and are very low maintenance. Thanks to their ability to hold water, you won’t have to nearly as often. Free up your time on the weekends for other enjoyable, less labor-intensive activities.
  • Increase Home’s Value: Even installing necessary retention walls is a bonus to potential buyers. When it comes time to sell your home, you will be glad to you took the time to invest in constructing retention walls for your home and your property. If you add a garden or trees to them, the curb appeal will also help boost the value.
  • Gives You More Yard: It is much easier to plant gardens and trees on flat land than on hills. Retention walls give you this ability, which leads to other previously mentioned benefits for your home and its value.
