4 Retaining Wall Units to Complement the Greenery of Your Yard in Cincinnati

When it comes to a thoughtful and comprehensive landscape design, each choice should be considered in light of balance and how each element will affect the other. For instance, whether your retaining wall unit is intended to function as protection against erosion, as an enhancement of privacy, or as a seat or low wall, the appearance of the landscape will be affected – in particular the contrast between the construction and the softscape elements of the landscape. Take a look at the diverse range of Unilock products for a complementary retaining wall that will do justice to the greenery of your Cincinnati, OH, landscape.

Brussels Dimensional System

The aesthetic elements of your retaining wall system should naturally complement your home’s architectural style, color choices, and other design features. Adding a retaining wall also requires a consideration of the impact on the aesthetic effect of your softscape design. With Brussels Dimensional System, you can either embrace contrast with a light gray shade or allow the retaining wall to blend into the background, letting greenery become the star of the show. Color options abound and include Coffee Creek, Limestone, River, Sandstone, Sierra, and Brown. All are earthy colors that will provide varying levels of contrast with greenery, allowing for a flexible design and choice of softscape inclusions.

Estate Wall

For an aesthetically elevating retaining wall system that will heighten the impression of any greenery, choose to construct using Estate Wall units. This system offers a weathered, commanding texture in a diverse range of colors. Choose from River, Sierra, Sycamore, and Walnut to design a feature that offers a natural and grand aesthetic that will provide aged character to even the simplest planting choices. For grand homes or traditional ones that need a bit of enhancement, plantings around Estate Wall take on the commanding traits of the construction and reflect well upon the property.

Lineo Dimensional Stone

A huge concern regarding your choice of material is undoubtedly ensuring durability and strength. With Unilock products, you’ll get both. In addition there are numerous attractive options that can be used to complement the style of your home. For homeowners with a modern architectural preference, Unilock offers Lineo Dimensional Stone. This series has a smooth surface and a linear focus with several rectangular, plank-like units of differing lengths and uniform width, with consistently clear and crisp right angles. You can choose from among Platinum, Sierra, or Walnut for maximum contrast or background effect and a modern appearance to go with the existing home’s appearance.

Rivercrest Wall

Rivercrest Wall is another option that complements greenery with a contrasting shade of color as well as a natural appearance. Rivercrest Wall units provide the aesthetic of stacked flagstone along with ease of construction, affordable cost, and durability. The colors on offer include Coastal Slate and Buff. Along with a selection of sizes, Rivercrest Wall ensures a natural and effective appearance. Whether you choose to incorporate greenery in the foreground or atop the retaining wall, Rivercrest Wall is an ideal choice for your plans.
