Let’s talk about preventing soil erosion. It’s a challenge many of us face. Proper drainage is one way to curb erosion (see our last blog post). Strategic planting of trees, shrubs, grass, and applying mulch is another alternative. If you have an especially sloped yard, a retaining wall is a great solution. Retaining walls “retain” areas of soil in sloped areas keeping the ground being held level and preventing further erosion. Retaining walls are typically built with stone or wood timbers and can be a beautiful focal point in your yard. It is crucial that your retaining wall is engineered and installed level with proper drainage or it may fail to function as intended. Integrity Landscapes Plus can help you do both.
