Some retaining wall block designs include wooden wall, mixed media and a wave of concrete, according to House Logic. Retaining walls reshape curves existing in the sloped property in which a flat surface is needed for a lawn, patio or other use.
The wooden wall retaining design uses pressure-treated wood; this ensures the wall’s durability, notes House Logic. Additionally, the use of landscaping cloth prevents any roots from coming through the wall.
The Mixed Media retaining wall uses uncut raw wall stones. The wall has two earthly elements; therefore, it needs an experienced mason to ensure there is careful planning taking place.
The wave of concrete is a kinetic design that is made from a veneer of color applied on the solid block concrete. The use of contrast colors on the retaining wall makes the wall come alive.
