Benefits of Building a Retaining Wall

A retaining wall is a structure that not only serves a functional purpose but can also be pleasing to the eye. They can improve the look of a garden, as well as provide many benefits. 

These are some benefits that Geotech Built has compiled for you.

The primary advantage of building a retaining wall is to hold back soil and create usable space in areas with steep slopes or hillsides. By holding back dirt and rocks, they prevent erosion and landslides, allowing residents to use their land for activities like gardening or adding an outdoor patio area. 

Retaining walls are also great for controlling water drainage by redirecting flow away from homes or gardens and providing more protection during heavy rainfall and flooding conditions. 

Retaining walls also help homeowners reduce lawn maintenance costs by creating terraced levels on sloped properties.

Types Of Retaining Walls

Retaining walls are an essential component of any landscape design and can serve a variety of purposes. Depending on the style and purpose, there are several types of retaining walls to choose from.

The most popular type of retaining wall is a gravity wall, which uses its weight to stand up against soil pressure. This type of wall is usually constructed from stone or concrete blocks, with interlocking pieces for added stability. Another common type is a cantilever wall, which utilizes reinforced concrete and steel rods for support. It works in much the same way as a beam does to hold up heavier structural elements such as balconies or porches. A third option is an anchored wall, which relies on tensioned cables that run through the soil into anchor plates embedded in the base of the wall to help hold it in place.
