If you have lived in your house in Kelowna for a long time, you may be looking for new ideas for your garden and landscaping in general. A retaining wall is one item you might consider, either because you need one or you want to improve your existing property.
A yard with a long sloping hill may create a breathtaking landscape, but having that slope means that it is difficult to have proper usable space in your yard. For example, a patio or shed will need level ground and a well built retaining wall can give you back usable space in your back yard.Depending on the size of wall that you build, you might need a permit from your local municipal authority. Check with your local rules and regulations before starting to build.
Let’s say you have a front yard that has a fence around it. A landscaping company can help make your garden look more unique with a retaining wall. Replacing the fence will give you a one of a kind look that both enhances the value of your property in Kelowna and is pleasing to the eye.
A back yard that is not properly leveled is a good candidate for a retaining wall. You might even create several levels of retaining walls if your property is leveled in such a way. This is a good opportunity to be creative in your landscape design and to use the space on each level for items such as flower gardens, a patio, or a small grass area.
