Recently, while on a few jobs in Marshfield and Hanover, we've seen a few retaining walls that are nearly collapsing. Retaining walls are structures designed and constructed to resist the lateral pressure of soil when there is a significant change in ground elevation. Some of the walls we've seen may not have been installed correctly or some may just be nearly a century old. Gardenin' Angels can build retaining walls from timber or stone that last a lifetime.
Here are a few of our philosophies on retaining walls:
- Design and build the wall with your family's needs in mind. How will it fit in with your lifestyle and the way your family functions?
- Create a solid base and plan for drainage. A retaining wall should not solve a problem on one area only to create a problem in another area.
- Ensure the wall is level and use backfill to add support.
- Incorporate creativity. Adding curves, lighting, stairs, or built-in planters are some options to add beauty, function and value.

Very great post. I simply stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed browsing your weblog posts. After all I’ll be subscribing on your feed and I am hoping you write again very soon.
Thanks for pointing out that retaining walls are structures designed to resist the lateral pressure of soil and any significant change in ground elevation. I guess we should get some construction in our backyard to prevent any damages to my property. It would be even more necessary since we are near a hill, so soil erosion might happen if there is heavy rain or a hurricane.

Traditional retaining wall structures are constructed of concrete blocks or wooden facias combined with one or more layers of reinforcement.

It was interesting to me when you talked about how it is important to incorporate creativity when you are designing a retaining wall. I would think that it could be a good idea to have the retaining wall match the architecture of your home. Having your landscape and your home blend together would probably greatly increase your property value.
