Retaining Walls for Any Application
A retaining wall is a structure that is designed to hold soil behind it. Retaining walls are frequently used to transform uneven or hilly ground and create more flat, usable land. This also helps to protect your landscaping from soil erosion and ground collapse. A common application is a retaining wall planter, which surrounds the perimeter of a house or fence and creates a raised, protected environment for your plants.
Some of the common materials used in retaining walls include:
- Wall stones
- Natural stones
- Concrete block
- Treated timbers
When choosing the right material for your retaining wall, it is important to consider the height of the wall, proper drainage for moisture, aesthetics, and your own personal preference. We can discuss the options that are available and help you select the ideal material for your application.
Types of Retaining Walls
In addition to the right material, it is important to choose the right type of retaining wall. The right type of wall depends heavily on the soil the wall is retaining and how you want the final product to look. We custom design retaining walls in Los Angeles to suit the unique requirements of every property.
We custom design and install:
Cantilevered retaining walls: This type of retaining wall requires fewer materials and more attention to detail in the design and construction. Cantilevered retaining walls have a relatively thin wall and a base that extends into the backfill (the heel) and forward beneath the soil (the toe).
Gravity retaining walls: Among the most basic designs, this type of retaining wall works by using the sheer mass and weight of the wall to hold the soil in place. Shorter retaining walls may not require further reinforcement, but most versions require a small trench to maximize stability. The simplicity of the design works with a wide variety of materials and finishes.
Anchored retaining walls: These retaining walls can be used with any material and style. This design anchors the retaining wall to the earth using cables or strips.
During your consultation, we can assess the soil, your property, and the requirements of a retaining wall to determine the best type of retaining wall for your home. We can discuss your needs and preferences to develop a unique design that will best suit your property.
