Questions for retaining walls

For homeowners, retaining walls are often built if you happen to live on steep, sloping land where it is difficult to grow anything because the soil is constantly eroding. A properly constructed retaining wall will stop the erosion, hold back the soil and provide flat terrace areas for your backyard. Often built using bricks, paved stone or masonry blocks, retaining walls can also be designed to blend in architecturally with your home.

  • Can I build a retaining wall myself?
    Retaining walls, especially smaller ones, can be built for a backyard project. However, you should leave building large retaining walls to professionals. Some, like a poured concrete wall for a basement or several large terraced stone walls for a garden, take lots of planning. There are several different types of retaining walls to consider, and when constructing one the builder also has to plan for appropriate drainage tunnels. In short, building a retaining wall can often be harder than it looks. If a wall is build improperly, it will eventually fail and become a costly mistake to repair.

  • What different types of retaining walls are there?
    There are 3 basic types – gravity, cantilevered and piling walls. Most homeowners choose to go with gravity walls for their backyards, while most homes have basements constructed using either cantilevered or piling walls. Cantilevered and piling walls mostly used poured concrete, cement and steel beams. Gravity walls use masonry blocks, stone rocks or pavement bricks.

  • Is this expensive?
    Yes. The materials alone are often very expensive and hiring a contractor or landscaper can be expensive, but a having a well built wall is often worth the cost and a welcome improvement to the outdoor area.

As a professional in this line of work, you will often handle materials like brick mortar, concrete, wood, steel and rock. You will additionally have to deal with soil, gravity issues, and trying to create level landscapes with retaining walls.

    In order to install or build retaining walls professionally, you must first acquire the right kind of training and know-how.
