Benefits of Installing a Retaining Wall on Your Pittsburgh, PA Property
A retaining wall is an excellent investment for your Pittsburgh, PA, property. Not only does a retaining wall system add function to your outdoor space, but it also adds a unique aesthetic to your yard in a way that other outdoor paving products cannot. Retaining walls help to create different elevations on your property, in both a functional and aesthetically pleasing way. Whether you are looking to create a raised patio and pool deck, or simply apply a low seat wall with pillars to delineate a front walkway, our Unilock retaining wall products are available in several different colors, styles, textures, and sizes, so you can design your wall to fit your preferences.Download our Project Planning Guide
Functional Applications Suitable for a Retaining Wall in Pittsburgh, PA
Retaining wall systems can be used for many different projects on your Pittsburgh, PA property. Here are a few considerations:
• Use a retaining wall garden bed to spruce up your outdoor space. Plant some veggies, flowers, and shrubs to add a pop of color to your hardscape.
• If you have a sloped yard, a structural retaining wall can be employed as a reinforcement to hold up steep slopes of grass or dirt, or you can turn your sloped yard into an elevated patio. Walls that are greater than 3 feet in height or with a heavy load will need to be engineered by a qualified civil engineer. Always check with local building codes before you start digging.
• Retaining walls can be used with steps and staircases to increase access to different elevation levels of your property.
