Benefits of Retaining Walls

Best Parts of Having a Retaining Wall

Retaining walls serve as a popular landscaping tool and offer homeowners a variety of benefits. From seating to enhancing curb appeal, retaining walls open a world of possibilities! With the experienced team at J Birds Landscaping, homeowners can utilize retaining walls at their South Hills area homes in a variety of amazing ways.

New Retaining WallStunning Patio Space

Rather than a wooden deck that requires frequent maintenance throughout its lifespan, you can utilize SRWs and pavers to create a raised patio. This provides you with a beautiful, low maintenance space where you can entertain family and friends. You can also utilize low fencing, plants, or even a freestanding wall to create a barrier without obstructing your view from the patio. Stairs can also be built using SRWs that will connect your raised patio to the yard and your home. 

Convenient Seating Areas

You may have seen stadium or amphitheater seating created with SRWs. On a smaller scale, homeowners can also create this type of durable outdoor seating for their homes. You can choose seating such as freestanding seat walls that offer privacy and comfort, or you may opt for a two-tier couch design. You can also choose to incorporate a fire pit or a patio with your seating area so you can utilize it in the warmer summer months and cooler fall season. 

Utilize Your Backyard

If you have more of a hill than a backyard, retaining walls can be used to help create flat areas in your yard, making it more usable and more visually appealing. Your backyard can be excavated and have a single retaining wall or tiers of retaining walls installed to create a backyard space you can enjoy.
