Retaining Wall FAQs

Here's some tips & frequently asked questions on how to find the right retaining wall contractor for your job

1. What is a retaining wall in construction?

Retaining walls are structures designed to confine soil to a slope that it would not naturally keep to; typically a steep, almost vertical or vertical slope. The wall's purpose is to bound soils between two different elevations often in areas of terrain possessing unwanted slopes or in areas where the landscape needs to be shaped severely and engineered for more specific purposes like hillside farming or roadway overpasses.

There are five different types of retaining walls:

  1. Gravity: Gravity walls are designed based on their mass (stone, concrete or other heavy material) to resist pressure from behind and may have a 'batter' setback to improve stability by leaning back toward the retained soil.
  2. Diaphragm Wall: These walls are very stiff and generally watertight. Diaphragm walls are expensive, but they save time and space and are commonly used in urban constructions.
  3. Bored Pile: Bored Pile walls are built by collecting a sequence of bored piles, proceeded by excavating away the excess soil. Depending on the project, the bored pile retaining wall may include a series of earth anchors, reinforcing beams, soil improvement operations and concrete reinforcement layer.
  4. Anchored Walls: An anchored retaining wall can be constructed in any of the other retaining walls styles but also includes additional strength using cables or other stays anchored in the rock or soil behind it.
  5. Sheet Piling: Generally used in soft soil and tight spaces, sheet pile walls are driven into the ground and are composed of a variety of material including steel, vinyl, aluminium, fibreglass or wood planks.
 

2. How should a retaining wall be built?

Retaining walls are becoming popular for their aesthetic value and ability to create more usable space. When you get in touch with a reliable retaining wall contractor via iSeekplant, they'll ensure each step is being performed carefully, and the results are to your expectations.

The process of building a retaining wall includes digging a trench, creating a building base, laying the first course of blocks, efficiently building additional courses, and then finally finishing the retaining wall.

 

3. What is the cheapest way to build a retaining wall?

If you have a limited budget and want to make sure your retaining wall doesn't eat too much of that, you should start with your material choice. Retaining wall materials vary in price from relatively inexpensive to very expensive. For instance, treated pine tends to be the cheapest option at $250 per square metre. The other options include hardwood, concrete sleepers, besser blocks, natural stone, etc. Whether you need retaining wall repair or want to get a new one built at a reasonable price, you can find a supplier through iSeekplant.

 

4. How do I know if I need a retaining wall?

The functions of a retaining wall majorly include managing water runoff, battling gravity, and to provide extra support to prevent the earth from moving downhill with erosion. If you're wondering whether you need a retaining wall or not, try answering the following questions.

  • Do you need a way to control downhill erosion?
  • Is your home downhill from soil fault lines?
  • Does a sliding hill threaten your foundation?
  • Do you want to create more usable space with your yard?

If you've answered yes to any or all of the above questions, then you'd require a retaining wall.
