Retaining walls are often designed simply to level out or flatten a single sloped area in a Denver backyard, however retaining walls allow for many different designs and purposes. Retaining walls are often designed as planters in backyards for Denver homes. These planters can be designed for retaining wall structures, or as freestanding retaining wall planters in the backyard. This allows for a variety of plants and foliage to be laid out in a dedicated space and for the elevation of the outdoor space to be highlighted as well as the walls will define the incline.
