Retaining walls play a crucial role in preventing landscape erosion. Moving soil can be the result of the pressure of gravity and the weight of the houses. By building retaining walls, you prevent that from happening. Landscape walls are an excellent idea in some cases, but you will need an expert eye because building a retaining wall maybe sounds easy, but they take some great skill and expertise. But here at P&S Fencing and Decking, we build the best residential and commercial retaining walls. Our professional team is highly skilled and trained to build you the best retaining wall, taking all the important factors into count.
Retaining wall design and planning
Before we chose the materials, we will use for your specific project, and we have to examine the land carefully because the last thing we want is the wall to collapse.
There are a few factors that we always carefully examine:
The location: Is the retaining wall going to be placed on a flat space or a slope? We always look at the above and underground utilities, including water systems and irrigation. We examine the natural drainage patterns. These are just a few things we take into account when it comes to examining the location.
The soil: we always examine the soil before we go into further planning. The soil should be firm, hard, and not moist, as wet soil can expand and contract in freezing temperatures. Okay, we have pretty good weather here in North Texas, but it still freezes sometimes. These are a few of the reasons we examine the soil well before we go into further stages of your retaining wall project.
Design: Taking all the previous factors into count, we start designing the retaining wall, following precise calculations of the walls' height, slopes, and setback angles.
Drainage: We always ensure that enough drainage can occur since water is the most common reason for collapsing retaining wall!
Types of retaining walls we build:
Working for both residential homes and commercial properties/projects, we build the following types of retaining walls:
The best materials for the building of retaining walls really depends on the type of project. We find that stones are overall very reliable to build retaining walls. The water drains well through stones, and they are long-lasting. Other materials that we build retaining wall blocks with are concrete, bricks, limestone, sandstone, and different types of wood like pine or pressure-treated wood.
