How long does a retaining wall last?

Retaining walls are built against the ground to hold the soil and provide a level area that can be used for any purpose - whether it be a planter or building a structure or road. The retaining walls are built strong to hold the heavy dirt in place. The lifespan of these walls will vary depending on the conditions of your property and the material selected. Wood or timber retaining walls look great and are easy to install; however, a timber retaining wall can only last about 40 years. A properly installed masonry or concrete wall can last 50-100 years. If the retaining wall is made of stone masonry, it is stronger than other materials and will last even longer. We also recommend installing a drainage system behind the wall structure so that any water can escape. This allows water to flow away from the wall, which will help maintain its strength and extend the life of the wall. Replacing broken blocks can also allow the wall to maintain its strength and look. Timber and interlocking concrete blocks are easier to install and can be a great DIY project. However, mortared masonry and poured concrete are best left to a professionally trained mason who can make sure the job is done right. The most important factor in longevity is the correct installation and construction of your retaining wall.

Are retaining walls necessary?

Retaining walls are just one of the ways to maintain a flat area for greater flexibility and future development of the property. They can be effective, but they are not the only solution. Retaining walls retain soil and provide a nice flat area to use. This allows the dirt to be placed behind the retaining wall instead of having to dig up the dirt and remove it. There are other methods to help contain the earth; however, a retaining wall adds a nice design feature to your property and can allow a place to install a patio or landscaping. A smaller retaining wall can be built to create a beautiful planting area and allow the flowers to be raised to create a new look for the property. This task can be difficult to accomplish without a retaining wall, which can create a level area for the plants. So it is not always necessary, but the practicality and aesthetics that a retaining wall adds to the property area are undeniable. Several material options are available to suit your landscape or budget. To create a retaining wall, we can use: natural stone, concrete, cinder blocks, precast blocks, wood or man-made boulders and pavers.
