Retaining walls are most commonly built on surfaces that are uneven or sloped. They can be used to help prevents landslides and they can be extremely helpful when trying to even out the backyard terrain to plan for future landscaping projects.
Contrastingly, freestanding walls, which are often accompanied by pillars, are built with the intention of privacy, security, or to section off a space. They differ from retaining walls because they are not built on an uneven surface.
Garden walls are the shortests of the walls. Their purpose is to surround trees or plants while adding an extra decorative aspect to your front or backyard.
Tucson Professional Landscaping has a range of functional and artistic design solutions to meet your needs.
Retaining walls are structures built to hold back soil or rock and prevent it from sliding or eroding. They are commonly used in landscaping and construction, particularly in areas with sloped terrain or uneven ground.
Some common types of retaining walls include:
- Gravity retaining walls: These walls rely on their own weight to resist pressure from the soil.
- Cantilever retaining walls: These walls are supported by a structural beam and reinforced with rebar.
- Anchored retaining walls: These walls are held in place by cables or rods anchored into the ground.
- Sheet pile retaining walls: These walls are made from interlocking sheets of metal, concrete, or wood and are used in waterfront or shoreline applications.
Retaining walls can be constructed from various materials, including concrete, stone, masonry, wood, and steel. The choice of material depends on the specific needs of the project and the desired aesthetic.
Proper design and construction of retaining walls is crucial to ensure stability and prevent collapses. Local building codes and regulations should be followed, and it’s recommended to consult with a professional engineer or contractor if there is any concern about the stability of the soil or the structure of the wall.
