Retaining Wall Protection
The ”retain” part of a retaining wall is designed to hold back the soil behind it. Since the retained material can have considerable pressure, weight, or force, the emphasis on professional and structural integrity is part of the overall design process. Furthermore, water coming down from inclines can add more pressure and weaken walls that are not structurally sound. Drainage and runoff consideration must be put into the design.
The benefits of retaining walls include:
- Prevent erosion
- Improve water drainage
- Creates usable spaces
- Channel water to proper run-off locations
