Does My Property Need a Retaining Wall? Cumming, GA
Cumming GA Backyard Hardscapes Design

Properties come in all shapes and sizes. While many Georgia neighborhoods are established on flat land, there is still a significant amount of homes that were built on a slope or hill. Whether your home is on a mountain that overlooks water or your front yard has a steep incline to the street, you may need to consider the possibility of a retaining wall if you want to protect your landscape.

A well-constructed and designed retaining wall offers both functionality and beauty. They serve invaluable purpose towards protecting your home and property from damage, but they can also be made to match your unique style and preferences. While some homeowners want to disguise their retaining wall with dark timbers, others may want to make a statement of style with natural stones. There are differences in longevity and cost in each retaining wall option.

The Roles of a Retaining Wall

To confirm you need a retaining wall, you should understand what this landscape addition can do for your property:

#1 Combat Soil Erosion
A hill or slope on your property can lead to erosion over time. As gravity and water take their toll, the soil on the hill will begin to erode. A retaining wall can reduce the angle of the hill and hold the soil from sliding or eroding.
#2 Add Useable Space
Whether in the front yard or the back, a hill can be a difficult terrain to make use of or enjoy. Retaining walls can be constructed to create a flat space in your yard so that you can play, entertain or plant a garden.
#3 Prevent Flooding
Is your steep slope near water? If your property is an area of high risk flooding, a retaining wall can prevent costly damage by controlling the flow of heavy rainfall.
#4 Protect Your Foundation
Erosion on a slope near your home can compact an uphill foundation and lead to repairs.

What our clients say about us

Jeffrey H.

Got sod and dirt. Both delivered on time, reasonably priced, and high quality (only found 2 rocks in 6 cubic yards of dirt and only 1 rectangle of sod out of 5 pallets was mangled). Both drivers friendly and were able to maneuver around my yard to put the stuff where I wanted it. Mostly appreciate that every time I called, someone picked up the phone rather than an answering machine. Would choose again.

We've purchased dark brown mulch from other landscape supply companies in Canton and the mulch always faded within a couple of days but then our landscaper told us to get our mulch from GLM Sod and Landscape supplies, so we decided to try them out and after an entire year, the mulch is still dark and looking great! I'll pay a few dollars extra to have our mulch delivered from Milton from now on - it just makes good sense!

Peter G.

Huge thank you to GLM for great professional products, as well as impeccable service! I will definitely be back to purchase more for future projects!
