|What is a retaining wall?
Retaining wall (Arch. & Engin.), a wall built to keep any movable backing, or a bank of
sand or earth, in its place; -- called also retain wall. [1913 Webster]
Retaining walls have been used for thousands of years as a means of utilizing
marginal land. Most segmental retaining wall (SRW) systems are suitable for
straight or curved walls, corners, and stairs, and they provide the
ideal way to accommodate grade changes in any landscape or garden project.
Uses include landscaping walls, terrace walls, tree rings, flowerbeds, planters, and
more. SRWs are especially functional for developers because they save space and
allow the property to be utilized to its maximum capacity. In heavy-duty structural
applications, SRWs can accomplish grade changes, provide erosion control, serve
as bridge abutments, and support
parking areas. They also offer effective retainment for ponds, creeks, lakes, and
The success of any segmental retaining wall installation depends on complete and
accurate field information, careful planning and scheduling, the use of quality
materials, and proper construction procedures.
