Retaining & Retention Walls
Retaining walls have gain popularity in the past decade for their use in landscaping projects. These walls were originally used in civil works or for holding a mass of earth while framing on the hillslopes where they are still used up to date. Retention walls are just the best hardscape features that you can include in your landscape for that accent and a multilayer illusion.
Retention wall design and building can be completed by oneself. However, for safety purposes, you need to consult an expert. Depending on the topography of the land, the foundation for your retention walls can vary in the construction. If you otherwise have a property on a plane land, then your retention walls are basically for aesthetics, and not much engineering work has to be incorporated in its construction. If the land is on a rugged surface or is on a sloppy surface, then a retention wall may serve the purpose of supporting the soil above and not just for beauty. This will need a strong retention wall with a well-laid foundation. This you cannot do on your own.

Which materials are used for constructing retention walls?
