What Are Some of The Most Common Types of Retaining Walls?
Boulder Retaining Walls
Boulder retaining walls are affordable and beautiful. When installed properly they can last for ages. These walls usually work perfectly in natural settings and they can be installed in areas with good soils or poor soils. During installation of boulder retaining soils, a fabric is usually placed between the boulder walls so as to limit the amount of erosion that can occur in the spaces between the wall boulders. These walls are considered to be an example of gravity walls since they rely on the mass of the boulders to stabilize the soil below. Boulder retaining walls can take on different appearances depending on the type of rock used in the construction and the design as well as style in which they are installed.
Paver Retaining Walls
Paver retaining walls can be both functional and highly aesthetically appealing. Though they are typically used to hold back a slope of soil, they can be used in landscape designs to create sheltered alcoves, garden spaces and to also give a visually style a space.
Pavers can be found in different shapes and colors meaning that retaining walls built from this material can be used to accentuate the visual appeal of your yard. They can be used to complement other projects built using pavers such as patios, pool decks, walkways and outdoor kitchens.
