Gravity Retaining Walls

If you didn't already know, you will soon find out that there are a variety of different types of retaining walls to choose from, all with their own added benefits. Gravity walls are a popular choice because they make use of their own weight to hold it in place which in turn holds the soil behind it. This type of gravity wall can range from small ones which are under 4 feet, to large ones. So if you are interested in a gravity retaining wall then let us evaluate your surroundings and let you know if this will be a good fit for you.

Cantilever Retaining Walls

This type of retaining wall can be quite large with heights of up to 18 feet. Cantilever retaining walls work based on leverage holding it up because its design is in the shape of an inverted 'T' which gives it the leverage that it needs. This method of retaining wall uses a lot less concrete than the aforementioned gravity wall.
