As the hot summer weather has slowly turned crisp, many people have put away their work boots and gardening gloves for the year until the heat of summer returns. Here at B&D Rockeries however, we see this as the perfect time to start work on those projects that did not make it to completion in the summer.
Why Build During Winter
By constructing a retaining wall for your lawn or garden while the winter months are here, you reap several benefits. The opportunity to work in cooler weather makes the job farÂ more enjoyable than working in the heat of summer. Constructing a retaining wall is also a great winter project that can get you active and out of the house.
When you take the time and effort to construct a wall during the winter, come summer time, you will not only have one less project on your to-do list, but your garden or lawn will look that much more impressive to friends and neighbors.

Repairs and Maintenance
If you already a perfectly constructed retaining wall decorating your yard or garden, winter is also the perfect time to maintain and repair it. Even if your retaining wall was once perfectly constructed to resist all weather and wear, without repair the wall can actually start to become a hazard and an eyesore.
Proper maintenance can prevent cracks from appearing or stones loosening or breaking off from your retaining wall. Another huge risk for retaining walls that haven’t been maintained is that they can start to bulge in places, a forewarning that a collapse is soon to follow.
There are several reasons walls can start to fall apart over time. It could be that there is poor drainage, causing water to build up behind the wall and inbetween stones. It could also be that wall has too much earth behind it, causing more pressure on the retaining wall than it is able to withstand.
To avoid having an unsafe or damaged wall, and also to avoid the high costs of repairs, have your retaining walls inspected to see if repair or reinforcement is necessary to ensure your walls will continue to be strong, safe, and beautiful for when dry summer weather comes back around.
