Retaining walls are essential features in landscaping, serving to prevent soil erosion and create usable space on slopes or hills. Unlike indoor walls, retaining walls are purpose-built to withstand the horizontal pressure exerted by the earth they support.
Constructing a retaining wall involves meeting strict construction standards, often requiring engineering and civic approvals. These walls form part of a comprehensive system that includes geogrid, stone, and drainage pipes, in addition to the decorative facing wall block.
While their heights can vary, retaining walls are generally taller than 3 feet. With their stability and structural support, retaining walls effectively transform challenging landscapes into functional and visually appealing outdoor environments.
