A retaining wall is a structure built to withstand lateral pressure of soil. It is designed to retain soil at different levels on the two sides. Often in areas of undesirable slopes or where the landscape needs to be shaped, retaining wall systems are used to manage soil between two different elevations. Apart from retaining the soil, these wall systems also protect against erosion and create consistent level areas in a landscape project. A well designed retaining wall system lasts longer and is more effective if factors such as drainage, soil conditions and proximity to other structures are considered before building.
Retaining wall systems provide load-bearing strength for added safety for long-term infrastructure and operations. Commonly used in commercial projects, a good precast concrete retaining wall ensures the worksite is stable and safe to work on. One of the key considerations in a well designed and installed retaining wall lies in the prevention of retained materials to move downslope. Therefore, it is also important to have a proper drainage system behind the wall to limit the pressure of the wall. Drainage materials will reduce the pressure and improve the stability of the materials behind the wall.
