Retaining Walls: Practical Beauty for Your Silver Spring MD Landscape

Retaining walls can be beautiful – and help solve a myriad of landscaping issues at your Silver Spring MD home.

In the simplest of terms, retaining walls hold back earth; retaining wall design, expert engineering, and materials can add a practical beauty to your Silver Spring MD landscape.

A severe backyard slope can be made into a useful area for play, gardening, and entertaining, with the addition of a stone retaining wall or walls that cut into the slope.

Retaining walls can also be used to battle flooding from a neighbor’s yard – or from another part of your yard. Retaining walls can be used to make way for an expanded driveway, or just to add interest to a flat area of your lawn. A series of low retaining walls make useful terraces for growing flowers and vegetables.
