Natural Stone Retaining Walls
Natural stones retaining walls are most popular material used to build retaining walls. They often resemble natural formations and beautify a garden, home, or business’ landscape. And if constructed with the dry stack method water will drain down their own while still being supported by a sturdy base without additional drainage equipment needed. They are simpler to maintain than most retaining walls and are often a better solution for slopes with high water tables.
Each type of retaining wall has benefits and drawbacks, but all are designed to keep water from eroding away at your property’s land. Gravity walls can be particularly useful in this regard because they use weight as a structural support. Any dirt or rocks that may fall down will be caught by the wall and help hold everything in place. However, this type of retaining wall may not be practical if you have large rocks or dirt that needs to be removed from your property.
Retaining walls are an excellent way for homeowners to protect their land from erosion without having it look like a construction zone!
Cantilever Retaining Wall
Cantilever retaining walls are often made of reinforced concrete, and use levering to create a cantilever effect that holds back the earth. This is an extremely strong retaining wall type, and can be used in more difficult soil types such as clay.
Sheet Piling Retaining Wall
One of the many types of retaining walls we offer are sheet piling, which use steel sheets driven into the ground for a very basic solution. Sheet piling can only be used in softer soils and is usually not as strong and may need an anchor. Sheet piling retaining walls only work in softer soils, as you need to have around one third of the wall driven into the ground.
Anchored Retaining Walls
Anchored retaining walls require any of the other types of barriers as part of its construction, and are additionally supported with cables anchored to the ground. Anchors provide additional stability in an area where earth pressure is too heavy for a wall on its own.
Gravity Retaining Wall
Gravity retaining walls uses the gravity of the materials to hold the soil in place. Because the structural integrity depends merely on the weight of the materials, this type of retaining wall makes a popular choice for residential and commercial properties. Pavers, natural stones, and brick are material options that lend well to this type of retaining wall. If you have a shorter wall you may not need reinforcement, but maybe necessary on taller projects.
