The function of Retaining Structures

Retaining walls are freestanding structures installed in outdoor areas. Their primary purpose is to hold soil or water in place to prevent landslides, soil erosion, or crumbling. In landscaping, these are used to provide depth, texture, and drama to the outdoor space, along with providing safety and protection. They can even double up as seating elements, driveway support, stairwells, pathways, flower boxes, and walls in your outdoor space

Safety and Aesthetics

Retaining structures play a significant role in maintaining safety in your area. This is aside from the aesthetic benefits that they provide. These can be used in areas where the soil has been dug out to make room for sidewalks, parking areas, or walkways. The retaining wall keeps the soil from crumbling down. In gardens and landscapes, they keep soil from eroding when it rains. They also serve as flower boxes to keep soil in place even after watering plants. Retaining structures can also be used for water features, such as a pool or pond built above ground.

At Charleston Creative Outdoor Solutions we work with a variety of materials such as

Concrete. Recommended for areas that require strong walls to keep soil in place. Concrete walls can be decorated or finished with various materials for added appeal, such as veneers, natural stones, or tiles. These are best used in areas where soil has been dug out or properties built at the side of a hill.

Brick. Bricks are ideal for landscapes because of their decorative properties. They can be easily stacked together by our expert masons. These are ideal for creating curved or wavy retaining walls and work better in low or subtle slope areas.

Stones or Boulders. If you want something that would match the natural surroundings of your home or office, stone or boulder retaining walls are recommended. These are ideal for fences and as a support for driveways and stairways.
