Building a Retaining Wall

All hardscape builders will agree that the structural design is the primary consideration when building a retaining wall. Failure of the contractor or homeowner to consider this factor can result in tilting, cracking, bowing, and collapsing walls. This scenario will not only cause damage to properties but also put the lives of your loved ones in danger. You can avoid this from happening by hiring only experienced retaining wall builders.

Retaining Wall Design

Whether you need walls to improve safety in the outdoor area or enhance the appeal of your landscaping, you should always opt for a carefully planned retaining wall design. Your contractor should have in-depth knowledge of the different types of retaining walls to be able to create durable and sturdy walls. Each wall must be designed based on its specific function or application. A 4-inch-tall retaining wall can be built without any additional steel reinforcements. However, walls taller than 4 feet should be designed according to local building codes. They may need structural reinforcements to withstand lateral soil pressure.

Block Walls

The vital functions of retaining walls in your property or landscape should not be understated. Durably built block walls can effectively prevent costly damages caused by soil erosion. They will also enhance safety in your outdoor area and even create new outdoor living spaces. With the help of professionals, you can have a safer, more functional, and more appealing landscape or property.
