When it comes to modern landscape design, it’s all about hardscaping. Retaining walls in particular can really modernize your landscape. Read on to learn about 4 modern retaining wall designs that will bring your space into a new age.

Modern Concrete Block Retaining Wall

Concrete blocks are practical and give off an industrial look. Because of their simple geometric design, they make an excellent modern retaining wall. The holes in concrete blocks can be used as wall planters if they are turned sideways, or you can build a variety of seating and entertaining options into your retaining wall with the versatility of concrete blocks. Although concrete blocks may look plain individually, when combined with other landscaping elements, they can really modernize your landscape.

Modern Poured Concrete Retaining Wall

Sleek lines just can’t be fully achieved with blocks because of the seams. If you really want something modern, consider investing in a poured concrete retaining wall. Not only will the smooth face and sleek lines make your space feel more modern, but you will also be able to add curves and unique features with the concrete that you wouldn’t be able to achieve with the rigidity of traditional concrete blocks.

Modern Wood Retaining Wall

Wood retaining walls require quite a bit of maintenance, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t build them. Wood can provide a unique, modern look without feeling cold and institutional. Wood retaining walls are excellent if you’re looking for a decorative retaining wall that can be maintained over its lifetime.

Modern Mixed Media Retaining Wall

Break the mold by unconventionally mixing different materials into a modern mixed media retaining wall. By combining multiple materials, you can create a retaining wall that really stands out. Consider combining concrete, stone, metal, and/or wood, depending on the space and other elements. This is an excellent way to get the benefits of a particular material (like stone or concrete) but still keep the aesthetic of a less weather-resistant material, like wood or certain metals.
