Retaining walls that are improperly constructed are notorious for failing, crumbling and deteriorating preventing them from doing the very thing they were built to do – protect!
When looking to build a retaining wall, you need to use a contractor with expertise and skill, who takes their time in the planning process. Good planning leads to excellent execution with no mistakes or surprises. There is a lot more to building a retaining wall than simply stacking blocks on top of each other. The geo-grid, toe drain, gravel back-fill, and stone footing are more important than the actual block installation.
