Ontario Retaining Walls – Functional and Beautiful
If you have ever seen any of our work you may have already seen our Ontario retaining walls. While they simply look amazing, you may not realize they also serve an important purpose. But they are also a delicate feature to add and if not completed by a trained and experienced pro they can cause more harm than good.
There are 5 main types of these walls:
- Bored pile
- Sheet piling
The basic purpose for this type of exterior structure is to hold sloping ground in place and prevent erosion. For lawns with slopes and problematic spots this is also a ways to create a level ground for creating a garden, play or just a more even look. But if done incorrectly, it can lead to problems.
For one thing, if the wall is not sound then it will quickly crack or buckle under the pressure of holding back heavy soil and water. Also, if poorly planned you could end up directing water towards the foundation of your home instead of away. This will rapidly cause structural damage that can lead to countless serious problems and expenses just to save your home.
