Steps and retaining walls are an essential part of any Northwest Indiana property, regardless of their location in the landscape. These features offer structural support to the soil, enhance accessibility and function, and, with the right materials, can contribute immensely to the landscape’s appearance. Consider these high-performance wall units and stunning coping options for retaining walls and steps that don’t compromise on appearance:
Rivercrest Wall for Old-World Flagstone Elegance
Retaining walls help to protect the landscape by holding back unstable soil, adding structural strength to area, and by helping with drainage issues. Retaining walls can also help to make the space more organized and provide level areas for plants, shrubs, and trees. Steps are an inevitable part of retaining wall design, contributing to the access between multi-level areas. The combination of these two elements contributes to a safer, more navigable landscape layout.
