The Advantages And Benefits Of A Retaining Wall For Your Yard

Making the dreams for your landscape a reality. We do it all!

When planning the landscaping of your yard, it is easy to overlook the importance of including a retaining wall. Particularly with the soil type that you find in most of Massachusetts, you can gain many benefits from having such a wall. The advantages you get are increased if the terrain of your yard is sloped, as a retaining wall can help you avoid costly soil erosion that can impact how your yard looks and grows.

In a general sense, here are the benefits you can expect from a retaining wall in Massachusetts:

More Options For Your Yard - A retaining wall is not just an aesthetic feature onto itself. It provides you with functionality and the chance to personalize your yard just that little bit more. For example, you can use it to add an extra splash of color by situating vines to grow over your wall, a bed of flowers around or within the wall, or many other possibilities.

Enhanced Soil Protection and Quality - This is especially important for Massachusetts gardeners, since the soil in some areas can be less robust than what you get further south. The major reason why you might have a retaining wall is to prevent erosion from wind and rain. Even minor amounts of erosion can easily kill plants with weak root systems, including trees, flowers, and in Massachusetts, even grass.

Better Growth and Fertilization - This goes hand in hand with the information above. If you are using fertilizer, you want to make sure that it has appropriate time to settle and penetrate your soil. This process can be disrupted by all of the processes that cause normal erosion. That being the case, a retaining wall can help you with some of your more temperamental plants that might require good, solid fertilization.

Creating a Cohesive Look For Your Home - Depending on the type of retaining wall that you use, it can be a great way to make sure that the “style” of your home is extended out into the yard as well. If you would prefer to create contrast, an oasis of orderly beauty away from the house, you can go with a subtly different look. The walls are available in a wide variety of different materials, so you are only limited by your imagination.

Many gardeners in Massachusetts will find that a retaining wall is a good way to encourage their perennials, many of which can be hard to replace in New England if they succumb to erosion problems. All in all, there is no reason not to try a retaining wall!
