Retaining walls are great for different elevations
of landscaping. You may see retaining walls mostly in parking lots, driveway entrances, and areas that require proper water drainage. I would check out some of the other hardscapes on our site for
ideas on how to improve your landscaping design.
It is possible to even build a small stream
through the yard using pumps and recirculating the water. Koi ponds are also popular for those individuals seeking a new hardscape.
