Seat Walls, Planters And Retaining Walls
Retaining walls in Dallas and seat walls are a very popular part of backyard design and landscaping. You will see them in both in commercial and residential settings. Retaining walls are not just for aesthetics they provide function as well. You can build your wall from many different materials; stone, wood, concrete or custom blocks. The three aspects you want to consider when having a wall installed are cost, maintenance and functionality. When considering these three points custom block walls become the best choice.

The Functionality Of Block Walls
Walls add a lot of functionality to any area. When added to a patio or pool area block walls can be made into a seating wall. This is a great way to create more space for relaxation and entertainment. Seating walls also offer the benefit of keeping areas enclosed without blocking the views of your yard and landscaping.

The Cost And Maintenance Of Retaining Walls
When considering the cost you have to move beyond the initial price. With wood you have ongoing costs and maintenance as well as the fact that wood doesn’t last anywhere near as long as stone or custom blocks. With mortared stone, Dallas weather conditions can cause potential cracking and decay of the concrete as we have all seen in concrete driveways, so more maintenance cost with stone too. The best alternative we believe is a custom block wall. It is not affected by the weather changes in Dallas, nor are there any real maintenance issues as we’ve seen with the other two materials.
