Gravity Retaining Walls
Gravity retaining walls are the most common type of retaining wall. It is easy to install and can be used in many different types of projects, from residential properties to commercial developments. The wall in held in place strictly by the force of it’s own weight, makes this a perfect retaining wall for natural stone or other heavy materials.
Gravity walls are ideal in residential properties because they can be installed quickly and easily without the need of any heavy machinery. They offer a clean look that is perfect if you want to bring more nature into your home by using landscaping, trees, flowers, etc.
Cantilever Retaining Wall
Reinforced concrete cantilever retaining walls create a lever to hold back the earth. Cantilever retaining walls use the weight of the earth and the weight of the wall to create a retaining system. The downside to this type of retaining wall is that it will not work with steep slopes, and can be difficult in soft soils because you need enough soil pressure on each side so as not to collapse the walls inward.
Each type of retaining wall has it’s perks and negatives, but some retaining walls are better at preventing erosion than others. Gravity retaining walls use their own weight to hold the material in place and prevent it from eroding away as other types of retaining wall do.
Sheet Piling Retaining Wall
One of the many types of retaining walls we offer is sheet piling, which use steel sheets to bury into the ground for a very basic solution. The one downside to this type of retaining wall is that the steel sheets will need periodic replacement as they rust. Sheet piles can only be used in softer materials and may need an anchor. Sheet piling retaining walls can only work in softer soils, as you need to have around 1/3 of the wall driven into the ground.
Natural Stone Retaining Wall
One solution for those looking for organic materials are natural stone retaining walls which use natural stones such as flagstone or bluestone laid out across one another or stacked vertically at an angle. These types of retaining walls are often expensive when compared to other options but they do look nicer in many cases – especially if they go along nicely with landscaping around your home or business property. This form of retaining wall needs less maintenance than some others.
Anchored Retaining Walls
Anchored retaining walls are any type of wall which is additionally supported with cables anchored to the ground. Anchors can be used when there is greater than normal pressure on the wall, making it more stable. The anchors are lodged in the ground in order to prevent the wall from sloughing off and tipping over.
Anchored retaining walls are more expensive than other types because they require a contractor with specialized knowledge but may be necessary if there is high pressure on the wall or an especially steep slope of ground.
