Benefits of Building a Retaining Wall

If you pay close attention, retaining wall construction at the Lake of the Ozarks is very common. Retaining walls look great and work well for landscaping. Aside from visual appeal, retaining walls have a purpose. With our Ozark hills, retaining walls guard against erosion for multi-level landscaping. There are numerous benefits of installing a retaining wall at the Lake of the Ozarks and Once Source Services is going share with you what those benefits are.

Erosion Control

Retaining walls work to keep soil in place in sloped areas, which are plentiful in the Ozarks. If you are looking to put in landscaping on a sloped area, heavy rain can cause the soil to wash away. By installing a retaining wall you will help keep the soil in place and help your landscape structure to stay in place.

Water Control 

When installed by a professional a retaining wall can work to redirect unwanted water to another area. Drainage systems can be installed within the retaining wall construction that will redirect water where you want it. This can help with flooding areas around your home or business.

Visually Appealing

Aside from the logistics of a retaining wall keeping your landscaping in place, a retaining wall can create visually appealing landscaping. There are endless ways a retaining wall can be built to accommodate landscaping and transform a slope into a work of art.

Adds Usable Space 

When you build a retaining wall at the Lake of the Ozarks, your retaining wall works to flatten out your space which will essentially give you more room. You can create safe walking spaces by adding structure to your land that otherwise would be too steep or unsafe to walk around.

Increase the Value of Your Home 

If you install a retaining wall at your home you will instantly add value. A retaining wall will protect the surrounding land from damage and add visual appeal to your home. If you intend to sell your property at any point, great landscaping adds curb appeal to your home which could potentially draw buyers into your home.
