The purpose of a retaining wall

A segmental retaining wall (SRW) is constructed of strong designed block and built horizontally to alleviate the erosion of soil, due to hills or slopes. In addition it will create a flat area to poorly sloped piece of land, adding more useable space. Our retaining walls are built with function and beauty, and are constructed of the highest quality material, so they’re built to last.

Retaining walls are built using materials such as wood, stone, interlocking blocks, or poured into place concrete. Each comes with its own benefits and associated costs. One thing to keep in mind is drainage. A drainage system behind the retaining wall is crucial to the life of the wall system, no matter what material is used to construct the wall.
