Retaining Walls for Landscaping and Drainage Use

Retaining walls create a barrier between a higher and lower area of land. Building a retaining wall will prevent ground erosion from an area due to water runoff or drainage issues. Kohler Lawn has experience installing retaining walls throughout Pleasant Hill, Jackson, Cass County, MO, and Johnson County, Kansas. 

How Do Retaining Walls Stabilize My Soil?

Using large blocks to hold the soil in place and correct drainage issues, a retaining wall redirects water runoff and keeps the current soil in place. After rainfall, gravity will move the water landing on the ground downhill, and soil not held behind a retaining wall will move with it. One of the most straightforward preventative measures homeowners can take to protect their property from erosion is installing a retaining wall. Not only do retaining walls improve function, but they also increase curb appeal and help increase home value in hilly subdivisions or for homes with basements in Missouri and Kansas.
