Types of Retaining Walls

When is a retaining wall necessary?

Well, you need one if you notice too much erosion when it rains. If you find too much erosion around your property and it is coming from the upper parts of the slope then you need a retaining wall. This ensures that there is no further risk of erosion that could cause your house or other buildings around it to collapse.

If there are fault lines in the ground around your property then you need a retaining wall. The ground will most likely settle a little every time there is a severe storm. This process can be faster and more dangerous if a disaster occurs, such as an earthquake. You must build a retaining wall to ensure that the property does not collapse.

The other instance where you need a retaining wall is if there is a sliding hill around your property. This often threatens the foundations of all structures around the hill. To prevent the structures from being swept away by a landslide, it is crucial to get a retaining wall.
