Here in the Omaha, NE, area, there are plenty of properties that are built on a slope. While that's not always a bad thing, it can pose some problems for property owners. Sloped areas are usually not very usable and if it rains, the water can run down the slope, leading to soil erosion issues and flooding problems. Luckily, you can help prevent these aforementioned problems by adding a retaining wall to your property. Retaining walls can turn sloped areas into flat, usable space, and they can also help reduce soil erosion issues. What's more, a retaining wall can also help prevent flooding on your property by stopping water from flowing down the slope of your property and pooling on it.
Retaining walls can add usable, flat space to your property.
One of the worst things about having a property that is located on a slope is that it can be difficult to get any use out of the area that is sloped. Luckily, that's where retaining walls come in. When you have a retaining wall installed on your property, it can turn that sloped area into flat, usable space. By leveling out the slope on your property, you can use the newly created space for other things that you would never have never otherwise been able to use it for. For instance, you could have a patio installed there, use it for a playground area for children, or just keep it open so that you have extra yard space. No matter how you choose to use it, you can be sure that your property will benefit from the extra flat space you'll get when you have a retaining wall installed on your sloped property.
Retaining walls can help reduce soil erosion issues on your sloped property.
If your property is on a slope, one of the biggest reasons that you should have a retaining wall installed on your property is that it can help reduce soil erosion issues. That's because, when it rains, the water can run down the slope, which can cause the soil to start slowly eroding over time. However, when you have a retaining wall installed on your property, the soil will be held against the wall, keeping it in place. This will help prevent your soil from eroding and you won't have to deal with the consequences that come with it.
Retaining walls can often double as a raised planter bed!
If your property is at risk of flooding, you should have a retaining wall installed on it!
If the slope on your property runs toward your home or business, flooding issues can easily occur when it rains. That's because the water will rush down the slope and can accumulate on the flat part of your property. If this happens, it can cause damage to your lawn, and if it ends up pooling near your home or business, can even cause damage to its foundation! When you have a retaining wall installed on your property, it can deter some of the water from rushing down the slope, minimizing flooding issues!
