Retaining walls and hardscape are an important aspect for most properties here in Central Florida. To prevent erosion, retaining walls need to be made from an incredibly strong material. One that will hold in place under the worst of circumstances. Which is why precast concrete is the perfect material.
Not only do they come in a variety of different designs and colors, precast concrete is strong, last for decades with minimum maintenance, cost effective and an environmentally friendly solution.
According to the National Precast Concrete Association, NPCA, “The strength of precast concrete gradually increases over time. Precast concrete earth-retaining structures are designed in a number of ways – some take advantage of the physical weight of concrete to resist lateral loads induced by soil pressures, while others rely on both the weight of concrete and retained soil to resist lateral loads with the aid of an MSE system.The durability of precast concrete offers a virtually maintenance-free structure that provides exceptional service for years to come. “
Elegant enough to enhance any property. The NPCA explains, “Concrete’s versatility allows one to create a nearly unlimited array of aesthetically pleasing earth-retaining systems. With the use of colored concrete or stains and formliners, it is easy to create a piece of artwork that complements surrounding buildings and landscapes. If a more rugged, natural look is desired, panels are available with natural stones cast into the surface or can be formed with stone finishes that can be stained to mimic local rock patterns and colors.
Precast concrete offers high quality and a low price tag. Instead of being cast on the building site, they are manufactured and cured in an environmentally controlled warehouse. Not only does this ensure top quality and formed to exact dimensions, they are fast and easy to install. With minimal mess and disturbance to the property. They also get stronger over time, instead of needing repairs like conventional materials.
“Precast concrete retaining structures are extremely versatile and are available in a nearly unlimited array of shapes, sizes and colors. Precast concrete earth-retaining units are ideal for residential or commercial landscaping projects.”
