Segmental Retaining WallProper retaining wall design is an important factor in ensuring the enduring function and purpose of the wall. Not too many people want their wall to fall down.

There are many factors that need to be considered when designing a retaining wall. How tall is the wall? What will be on top of the wall? What is the terrain that the wall is going to be built on? What blocks will be used? This and many other factors will determine how a professional will design your retaining wall. If your wall is going to be over three feet tall, you will likely need a professional engineer to design your retaining wall. Most municipalities will require an engineer retaining wall design and stamp if the wall has more than three feet exposed. A properly designed retaining wall will have a footer, some blocks embedded in the ground, geo-grid reinforcement, drainage pipes, & caps. Always consult a professional when building a retaining wall over one foot tall.
