Beginning stages of installation of retaining wallsThe Importance of Retaining Walls

Retaining walls are vital for the safety and integrity of any property. Most importantly, they help with erosion control. Retaining walls are designed to restrain soil to a slope. This slope is unnatural to the land, but used to steer a near-vertical or vertical slope. The installation of retaining walls are used to correct grades, increase property value, provide new, usable areas within your property, redirect water problems. All of that and when it is over the wall will become a visually pleasing part of your overall landscape.

Retaining Walls For Driveways

When you need a retaining wall for a driveway, there are some considerations about the type of retaining wall for the installation. This decision is if you want a cut or fill for the retaining wall. This decision will impact the design, materials, and details for building it. Let's break down these two types of retaining walls and get an installation that works for your situation.

Cut Retaining Walls

Cut retaining walls are primarily used when you need to extend your driveway or make it longer. With this sort of retaining wall, we need to ensure there is enough room for a car to get through. So there needs to be a few extra feet for the retaining to comfortably fit. And due to the design of this retaining, there is less of a need to worry about top-load, since the traffic goes through the driveway. So the retaining wall is simply opening up to clear a path for a better driveway.

Fill Retaining Walls

When you need to build up your driveway compensate for a slope that is too shallow, or to fix unstable land, then fill retaining walls are the way to go. This sort of retaining wall has some extra load on it, so it needs to be more stable. But since this isn't cutting into anything, it likely needs a parking curb or a guard rail to prevent people from accidentally driving off. We will work with you to ensure it is the right retaining wall for your property.

All driveways and retaining walls fall into these two build categories. Once you determine which approach your particular situation calls for, then you can give us a call! We can provide you with further details regarding the installation of retaining walls.
