Sloping sites can benefit from the construction of retaining walls to provide more level areas for planting and other uses. In addition, terracing with retaining walls can be both an attractive and functional way to prevent erosion and drainage problems while providing structure to the landscape. Retaining walls also help to buffer traffic and noise. They are the most popular and useful addition to the landscape.
Retaining Walls can be made out of many materials;

Color, shape, and texture provide visual interest. Blending of retainer walls into the surrounding landscape creates a natural environment and works well to create an informal effect. Symmetrical structures, geometric shapes, and straight walls combine to create the aesthetics of a formal, manicured landscape design. Tiered walls can be stacked to form a series of terraced steps and are especially common in large, sloped gardens.
