Different Types of Retaining Walls

Retaining Walls, New Cumberland, PAThere are unnatural and undesirable slopes in your property, which could lead to soil erosion. But you can prevent this from happening by building retaining walls. These walls bind soils, make elevations more uniform, and make an area more useful.

Retaining Wall Blocks

Retaining walls are built for safety and functional purposes, so they must be built using the best and most durable materials in the market. At Earth Tones Hardscape, LLC, we highly recommend premium brands of retaining wall blocks, particularly from EP Henry, Capitol Hardscapes, Nicolock, Techo-bloc, Belgard, and Unilock to name a few. These are the best manufacturers in the country today. All of their products are already tested and proven tough.

Concrete Blocks

Concrete blocks are also recommended for building retaining walls. They are also referred to as concrete masonry units or CMUs. These blocks have holes in them, which can be used to add steel reinforcement. These are filled with concrete mixture for a stronger, more stable wall. We highly recommend the use of CMUs for taller and bigger walls, or slopes with larger amount of soil. They are also flexible masonry materials and can be designed according to clients’ specifications.

Building a Retaining Wall

Retaining walls are not just built by adding blocks on a slope. They require a carefully prepared design plan to make sure they will last forever and not cause any problems, especially during natural calamities. At Earth Tones Hardscape, LLC, we follow the industry standards when building a retaining wall. A poorly designed and built wall usually lets in water and is not capable of keeping soil from eroding. You don’t want to go cheap and find your wall collapsing after a few months. Worse, it could pose threat to people. It’s best to hire experienced contractors who have skilled manpower, complete tools, and heavy-duty equipment to get the job done excellently.

Retaining Wall Design

Aside from ensuring safety, retaining walls will also improve your property’s aesthetics appeal. But this can be achieved if the walls are carefully designed by expert people. If you hire us, we will create a custom retaining wall design that will meet your requirements. We will also use elegant wall collection from Belgard to highlight the beauty of your landscape.
