Installing Retaining Walls

Cunningham Property Services Installs Durable Retaining Walls

Have you considered installing retaining walls to your property? Cunningham Property Services will discuss that in this month’s blog post. Retaining walls serve a variety of functions for your home. They add beauty while also protecting your property from erosion. These are great for areas that need added support against that risk. Retaining walls will also help improve usable land. Let’s look at some other reasons for adding a retaining wall to your home.

Retaining Walls Limit Your Flooding Risk

Retaining walls do a great job of directing drainage in your yard. No matter if it’s raining or snow and ice are melting, the retaining walls redirect water from your house. Cunningham Property Services can install a drain in the base of the retaining wall to help direct water flow. That helps solve your erosion problems.

Retaining Walls Cut Down on Maintenance by Property Owner

If you have a lot of slopes or hilly property, you have limited use for that ground. Retaining walls improve your land. Retaining walls are a great addition to a well-landscaped yard. With erosion control capability, a retaining wall can help reduce the amount of maintenance property owners have to perform.

Helping Improve Property Value When You Go to Sell

There could come a time when you decide that it’s time to sell your property. While you own it, there are a variety of changes you can make that will give you a great return on investment. Typically, retaining walls can add as much as 15 percent to your property value. They are a perfect complement to a variety of areas, including driveways, swimming pools and backyards.
