This typically utilizes pavers, natural stones, and bricks for their structural integrity but taller gravity retaining wall may need reinforcement or a concrete footing.

Panel Wall Retaining Walls
You’ll see panel walls used in long-lasting, tall applications such as highway ramps or near areas where there are heavy loads. They can also be built with posts to connect them which is precast concrete reinforced with steel. The face panels can be custom designed and have various architectural finishes that match the surrounding area.
Anchored Retaining Walls
Anchored retaining walls usually have any other type of retaining wall as the “front”, but they are additionally supported by cables which are anchored to the ground behind it. These anchors are pushed into the ground and enlarged by injecting concrete or other similarly strong substances. Anchors will reinforce the wall when pressure from the earth is too great, to help keep it upright.
What is the cheapest type of retaining wall?
Retaining walls have a wide variety of options as far as price is concerned. Material costs will also vary according to the market as well, but generally treated pine tends to be the cheapest choice at around $250 per square meter. Here’s a list of the relative costs of retaining wall materials, ordered from cheapest to most costly, as well as some pros and cons of each material.
Treated pine is the cheapest material. The issue with treated pine is it’s longevity, and this may cost you more later in terms of repairs or replacement cost. Galvanized posts between the pine is sometimes used to increase strength and life span.
Hardwood is a step up from treated pine. It will require treatment to make sure that it can withstand dirt and water.
Railway sleepers (otherwise known as railway ties) are also a cheap option, and they are made to withstand the elements such as dirt and water.
Concrete sleepers are going to last much longer than any material made out of wood, but are going to have a higher cost. You can select from the natural grey color of concrete or choose a colored concrete. You can also have the option of reinforcing the concrete with galvanized steel, which will increase it’s durability.
Besser blocks are going to be the next level up in price but offer long term durability.
Interlocking concrete block have various pricing options. They are also very flexible in terms of the way they look. Interlocking blocks can be used for straight walls, curves, and even corners. They are made for the DIY, but if it needs to be built higher, it can make installation for a professional much faster and easier. The blocks don’t require any mortar, as they are built to fit together.
Where are cantilever retaining walls used?
Cantilever retaining walls are reinforced concrete and work with the principles of leverage. The retaining walls are much thinner and they make use of the weight of backfill soil to resist sliding and overturning. Cantilever retaining wall is the most common type of earth-retaining structure. It is constructed of reinforced cement concrete was the predominant type of rigid retaining wall used from about the 1920s to 1970s. Earth slopes and retaining walls are two different options for controlling the elevation of ground surfaces.
What is the Easiest Retaining Wall to Build?
For do-it-yourselfers without much experience, building a retaining wall is easiest when using masonry blocks that are stacked no taller than three feet with no mortar binding the stones or concrete members. Experienced amateurs may be able, in theory at least, to complete more complex masonry installations or of building retaining walls using other materials but here we should mention that beginners with such ambitious goals are encouraged to work with an experienced landscape design contractor.
