Retaining structures are not only beautiful but extremely functional elements to any landscape or hardscape design. Their name derives from the fact that they hold or retain the soil in place and deter erosion. Boulders, stones, and concrete block are some of the materials commonly used for creating these particular types of hardscape features. Each material adds a distinct look and texture that can be fully integrated with a new or existing landscaping design.
