Retaining Walls

Posted on October 23, 2012

Retaining walls are a great way to add elevation to your landscape, and also provide an aesthetic look. Retaining walls are also great for shaping your yard, and creating elevated gardens. Though their features within your yard vary, doing a retaining wall yourself is dangerous, costly, and can end up ruining your yard.  Cataldo Landscaping, your Boston landscaping provider, provides professional landscaping service which will leave you and your yard safe while giving you the satisfaction you are looking for.




The purposes for a retaining wall vary, but the basic reason is to keep land within a certain space. Generally land tends to equalize itself within hills and valleys, but the hidden force at work is pressure. The more land you have, the more pressure it exerts. This is the danger of doing it yourself, if the wall is installed incorrectly it can push over.

Retaining walls are great for a terraced garden, a high risen flowerbed, or a small patio with a wall bordering it. Coupled with Cataldo’s Boston patio services, you can have a a beautiful terrace overlooking a patio in no time.
