Properly constructed retaining walls when combined with the strong durable products available today will endure the test of time. Well designed retaining walls can permit more usable space within your landscape as well as make landscape maintenance more manageable. With countless options now available, finding a style that meets your taste is easy. From a rustic, more natural look to a more refined, formal appearance, the choices and color options available will easily compliment any architectural style.
Designing a retaining wall requires that not only the basic shape of the retaining wall be considered such as whether a linear shape or a softer, more serpentine shape is desired, but issues related to overall safety and building codes be reviewed. If conditions permit, dividing the overall height of a taller retaining wall into several shorter retaining wall segments may be safer for children and pets but may also lend a less imposing appearance within the landscape.
For new retaining wall installations, it is imperative that not only manufacturers specifications for installation be followed, but local building codes and other special requirements be researched and complied with. Improperly installed retaining walls can pose a serious safety risk along with probable expense down the road to repair or the need to fully rebuild the retaining wall.
Unfortunately, repairs required to replace failed materials in a retaining wall or repairs for failed walls due to improper installation are generally not inexpensive. Removal and replacement of individual components of a retaining wall or an entire section that failed requires that the surrounding components be removed as well. This is time consuming work resulting in labor costs that unfortunately can climb upward rapidly. Electing to refrain from performing the repair on the other hand may jeopardize the safety of children, friends and pets. Knowing your retaining wall repair options is an excellent starting point.
