The hills, slopes and sharp grades around Cecil and Harford Counties can create some, if not many, challenges for creating and maintaining a beautiful landscape. You can have rainwater runoff that can create erosion problems, there can be safe walking issues around the slippery slopes in your yard and then there’s the mowing and maintenance issues on the side hills and slopes. The answer for many is to install a retaining wall(s).
The benefits for adding retaining walls around your Maryland property are numerous and include:
• Safety Issues: Drainage and walking issues will be eliminated by leveling the playing field
• Home Value: Walls change the appearance, beauty, and curb appeal of your landscape
• Lower Maintenance: Wall systems will last for years with little or no maintenance
• Unique Gardens: By terracing you can create pleasing landscape and garden areas
• Seating Areas: Through unique designs you can create seating and resting places
• Flat Areas: Building a wall can create a small or large flat area for guest parking or a play area
What type of wall options are available? Landscaping companies offer many different material options for retaining walls that include: Wood, Railroad Ties, Concrete Blocks, Limestone, Flagstone, Brick, Travertine, Poured Concrete, Field Stone and many others.
Please Take Note: Retaining Wall installation is not a simple DIY project. Poor construction of walls can be dangerous and expensive. We do recommend that you use a qualified construction or landscape company that has the engineering, design and construction talents that will ensure the quality and safety of your wall(s) and who use materials that match the needs of your property and project.
