Garden retaining walls perform several functions, and play important roles in the design. They are not only a support for plots which lie on slopes, but also offer a perfect solution for sensible space allocation. With a small wall, you can separate the different areas from each other  – so it is possible to have a patio, a flower and a vegetable garden in a limited space.

A garden retaining wall can be made of concrete, natural stone or granite. Cinder block retaining wall ideas are especially popular because construction companies mix the materials – the concrete for the retaining wall is later pasted with stone tiles to achieve a natural look. A wall of dry stone is the best /but often the most expensive option /. The granite walls are cheaper compared to the natural stone walls and can be built fairly quickly. Limestone is also an option – it can be combined with stairs and is suitable for homes that are on a slope. Often lighting is integrated into the design – so the wall is a real eye-catcher, and particularly for lower walls, it is recommended for safety reasons – to avoid stumbling in the darkness and hurt yourselves.
