It has been a wet season so far. All of this rain is causing drainage and erosion issues for homeowners all over the CSRA. Standing water can be seen in all types of yards. Building a retaining wall with French drains may be the solution you are looking for.
Sure, retaining walls look like modest arranged stone or block. But in fact, they’re carefully designed systems that have a continual battle with gravity. They confine tons of saturated soil that would otherwise fall and slide away from a foundation or damage the surrounding landscape. These attractive barriers also make more inviting spots to gather. Retaining walls can also increase functioning yard space by terracing sloped properties.
There are a few different scenarios that need a retaining wall to fix the problem like: Along sloped landscapes where water runoff causes hillside erosion, spots downhill from soil fault lines and where the downhill side of a foundation is losing supporting soil or its uphill side is under pressure from sliding soil.
If your property needs a retaining wall, or if the one you have is failing, give Between the Edges a call. We can get a wide variety of blocks to build the perfect wall for your property. Check out Pavestone for different block options.
