In the past month, heavy rains and high winds wreaked havoc on so many people's homes and properties. For those who did not have severe flooding and suffered only water erosion due to improper drainage, retaining walls and drainage systems can do wonders for a yard or property. It can also define areas of the yard and help with water drainage all while making a yard look beautiful.

Landscaping retaining walls are the skeleton of the yard; they lay the foundation on how a yard will drain and how the dirt will be contained. If a yard has a slope to it, a retaining wall can help with drainage along with beauty. Railroad ties are a popular material but they do not last as long as rock or stone and will need to be replaced over a period of years. Rock, brick and stone can and will last for decades and require little to no maintenance.

But are retaining walls expensive? There are so many options today for all budgets. Edgington Construction works with their clients and understand that every situation is different.
