Retaining wall Gmoscape Contractor LLC Connecticut

A retaining wall is a structure specially designed to retain and support soil to a slope that it would not typically keep to. These walls are often created with relatively rigid materials such as stone, concrete, or brick because it is important they manage to retain big pieces of soil and also that these walls can protect your property from any unwanted water runoff.

 

Retaining walls are necessary when you have a sloped yard and you need to level the surfaces in order to make better use of your property by adding some extra space and providing opportunities to create beautiful landscape designs containing structures like walkways o stairs for example.
