The following is a list of 20 retaining wall ideas gathered from around the web.
Retaining walls are basically walls that are specially designed to hold soil on one side and remains free standing on the other.
Why would you want a retaining wall?
Retaining walls help to keep the soil or land from collapsing over. It is beneficial for areas with steep changes in elevation and can save space. If for example there is no retaining wall you would instead have a hill shape. Retaining walls help to give a landscape a neater appearance while also making a yard appear larger.
Retaining walls may also be used on level ground for the purposes of creating elevated planting areas. They may also be used for designing fire pits.
There are many different methods and materials that can be used to create retaining walls. Older styles of retaining walls typically include natural stones, bricks, or wood, but rarely a combination. Newer techniques gaining in popularily includes the use of concrete. Concrete retaining walls may be subject to cracking or erosion but created properly last many years. They often look the most aesthetically pleasing and are very sturdy.
Those that live in an area with natural rocks may create a retaining wall by blasting the existing rock walls.
Another option includes the use of fiberglass or precasted products. These can simply be placed over top of an existing brick or wooden retaining wall to give an appearance that there exists some natural rock features.
