Retaining walls are an important part of your landscaping. They hold back earth and soil that would otherwise slide into your house and ruin your living space. If soil is not properly contained, you will have all kinds of problems with uncontrollable drainage, unsettled earth, possible landslides, and falling rock.
When a house is built, it is imperative that the land surrounding the property is stable, leveled off, or properly sloped. Many times, homeowners wait to have their landscaping finished as it is a continuing process and costs money. What they don’t realize is that if the earth and ground aren’t stable, the cost to clean up a possible disaster is more than they can imagine.
Living in the Pacific Northwest means putting up with months of wet weather, blustery wind, and torrential rain. The never-ending moisture turns our backyards into muddy, wet marshes that soften the earth. The swampy earth creates soil erosion that can drag down old tree stumps, inclined surfaces, and rock piles in a matter of seconds.

Not only do retaining walls protect your property, but they also provide a clean, stunning look to your landscape and add extra space for plants, flowers, and gardens. If you’ve been dreaming about improving the space in your backyard but aren’t quite sure how to do it, a retaining wall might do the trick.
Retaining walls are functional and create a distinction between neighboring properties. These walls are great for supporting houses built on sloped land. Retaining walls can be built into tiers to add beauty, and structure while providing a high-end look to any home.
Retaining walls are an excellent way to create a new landscape or preserve an existing one, and they can be used in several ways.
A retaining wall can be used to create a patio that enhances your home’s curb appeal. They are also great for creating additional garden space and flower beds without having to dig up the yard.
In addition, a retaining wall can help protect existing landscapes from erosion by holding back water as well as dirt and rocks that would otherwise wash into them during heavy rains or other weather events like flooding.
The stability of such walls is affected by groundwater pressure, the strength of the material used, the amount of surcharge load, and temperature variation.
In areas with deep excavations in soft soils or underlying sand layers, it is important to design retaining walls so as not to create excess pressure on other parts of the excavation or structure.
If a retaining wall is designed improperly (too short), it may act as a dam and cause water to build up behind it or within its fill mass. This can lead to settlement failure along slopes above the wall and possibly failure at grade if drainage systems cannot cope with this additional inflow.
Depending on how far apart these slabs are spaced relative to their length/height ratio – called “slab ratio” – they can either be effective at resisting lateral forces due to surcharge loads imposed from above; or ineffective at resisting lateral forces due to both surcharge loads.
