Retaining walls can be a great addition to your home or commercial property. If you are not sure of what retaining walls are, they are structures that hold soil or retains soil behind it. They also are used to create levels in a landscape. Usually the materials used for retaining walls are concrete blocks, poured concrete, boulders, or even treated timbers. Whatever kind of retaining wall you want will truly depend on what you need supported or separated. There are two main types of retaining walls:
- Gravity Retaining Walls: These are retaining walls that are dependent on their own weight. They work by setting back to retain soil. They are usually short.
- Reinforced Retaining Walls: These are retaining walls that utilize reinforcements to add strength to the retain the wall’s structure. Usually they require earth anchors or soil nails to reinforce the wall.
There are many reasons you may want to install a retaining wall. Retaining walls can prevent erosion of earth. They are also great for stabilizing a sloped backyard. Retaining walls can also simply be an aesthetic addition to your landscape, as they can be built to frame swimming pools, driveways, and patios.
