A retaining wall can be more than purely decorative; it can contain a flowerbed, enable terraced landscaping, or mark the boundaries of your property.

Many different materials can be used to build a retaining wall: wood, cement, or concrete blocks. Over time, wood will rot and cement will crumble, but if it is well built, a concrete wall will remain beautifully intact for a very long time.

Enhance the look of your home with a concrete retaining wall: simply follow the steps described here below, and build it yourself.
