The process for installing a retaining wall involves digging a trench beneath the level grade of the land, filling that trench with a layer of compacted base material and at least one row of blocks which once the job is completed, won’t be visible. This row is the anchor for the wall. The higher the wall, the deeper the anchor needs to be and in turn, the more material needs to be installed beneath the surface. Once the foundation is set, we build the wall row by row. Behind the retaining wall, we install a special geo-textile fabric which will allow for proper water percolation and also contain the large grade rocks which are going to be filled in the gap behind the new wall and the earth. Once the wall is built up to the height that is necessary, a cap stone is installed, the fabric is closed off and dirt and grass are installed over the gap we discussed above.
This is a very general description of how retaining walls that hold back earth are installed. Beyond this application, firepits, sitting walls, landscape walls, and stand-alone privacy walls are installed a little differently as they don’t generally require a deep anchor row, geo-textile fabric, rocks or grading. They are more decorative in nature and in turn, they are cheaper.
