Retaining Walls: The Key to Keeping Your Property Looking Its Best

With spring on the horizon, it’s time to start thinking about how you can keep your property looking its best. One of the most important steps you can take is to install a retaining wall with an effective drainage system. Without proper drainage, your property could become susceptible to water damage and erosion. Let’s explore how a retaining wall from Cardinal can help protect your property and keep it looking great.


What Is a Retaining Wall?

A retaining wall is a structure designed to hold soil or other materials in place while providing additional support. They are usually made of concrete, stone, brick, or wood. When installed properly and with the right type of material, they can last for decades without needing much maintenance. A good retaining wall should also include an effective drainage system that directs water away from vulnerable areas like foundations and walkways. This helps prevent flooding and costly repairs in the long run.

Signs You Need a Retaining Wall:

Retaining walls can help protect your property from floods, but how do you know when it’s time to invest in one? Here are some signs that you need a retaining wall on your property:
● Cracking or crumbling bricks or stones around the foundation of your home
● Uneven ground near pathways or walkways
● Poorly drained soil near buildings or structures
● Excessive runoff during storms that causes flooding or pooling water near buildings
