Retaining walls are structures that used to bound two elevation levels of soil or some other landscape material. They are usually used where the landscape needs to be shaped and constructed to hold the pressure of soil behind it. There are many different materials which can be used to create retaining walls like wooden posts, poured concrete, rock. However, the most popular and the ones which will beautify your landscape design are concrete blocks and natural stone. It is crucial to hire experienced and professional contractors like Action Home Services who knows all the city by-laws and will build your retaining wall safely.
Retaining Wall Installation
The retaining walls can be constructed in four different ways: gravity wall, piling wall, cantilever wall, anchored wall. The most popular methods of building retaining walls in landscaping are gravity retaining walls and cantilever retaining walls. Gravity retaining walls depend on their own weight and the base on which they are built. They can be built with the masonry bricks, concrete blocks or poured concrete. The stones or the bricks may be glued together using construction adhesive or cement. Cantilever retaining walls are usually made of reinforced concrete or mortared masonry. These walls are typically supported from the back or front to improve their strength.
