Retaining Wall Blocks

There are many different kinds of retaining wall ideas to choose from, each one catering to specific needs.  The most common type of landscape designed retaining wall blocks in 2017 are gravity walls. Gravity walls can be built with landscaping stone, metal or concrete retaining wall blocks and are design to hold up large masses of soil because they are strong from the heavy material they are constructed from. Another type of concrete retaining wall construction is made from sheet piling. A retaining wall is a structure that is built into the landscaping front yard terrain to block off an area and create an open space. They are used in areas that have uneven soil where the land needs to be molded to create a flat space. Retaining blocks are often used in hillside areas for farming or on highways to block from the surrounding hill or mountainside. However, retaining wall systems can also be used in your backyard designs to separate the area from a hill or just as a fence to enclose your land.

Building a Retaining Wall

If your home is on a slight hill, wall blocks can be used to line your sidewalk and create a barrier between your yard and the street. For smaller projects like this, building a DIY retaining wall is relatively easy. The first step in building a retaining wall is to excavate the slope of the area of choice. You can use a shovel to dig out at least a foot of space to place your wall and a few inches deep to allow room for your first layer of blocks. After spreading an even sheet of gravel along the area for your wall you can lay down the first layer of blocks. Then continue to stack the blocks following the manufacturer’s directions until you have built your wall to its desired height. Using interlocking retaining wall blocks will make your project easier because it allows the blocks to stack evenly and stay in place. Because an construction adhesive is only applied to the top layer, interlocking blocks offer the most support for your wall.

Walls and Walkways

They can be built at the bottom of the hill to provide a barrier between the flat yard and slope of the landscape. Moreover, building a fire pit with retain wall blocks is a great way to provide a safe and enjoyable addition to your back yard. The retaining wall will secure the area and prevent your fire from spreading, allowing you to enjoy the cozy warmth of a fire in the fall or roast a few marshmallows in the summer. This article discusses retaining walls and how the DIY homeowner can incorporate them into their landscaping.

Best Types of Walls

Once you have determined the best type of retaining walls you need, you can begin to pick out the type of material you would like to use. The material you use will depend on its use, however, retaining wall blocks often come in a variety of different colors and textures to add to the décor of your yard. You can determine the retaining wall blocks cost by taking a trip to your local home improvement store. Here you can choose between a wide variety of options to determine what system is best for you. You can purchase cheap retaining wall systems for projects that are more for decoration than to hold back soil. For more heavy duty projects, consider spending a little extra money so that your wall is sturdy and can hold soil in place for several years. How to build retaining wall depends on the complexity of your landscape design ideas and the function of the wall. If you are incorporating landscaping blocks into smaller areas then it will be easy to install.

Small Backyard Ideas

Sheet piling is mainly used for smaller backyard areas and designed to hold back softer soils. They are made from steel, wood, or vinyl boards that are anchored into the ground.  The third style of retaining wall is the cantilevered wall. This style is made from steel, concrete, or mortar and has a large wall connected to a horizontal plank and stabilized by planks in the back. This type of concrete wall is commonly used for higher areas and tend to use less material than other styles. Another style of retaining wall is anchored wall. Do it yourself landscaping can be built from steel, wood, concrete, or mortar, similar to the other types, however this wall is also attached to a cable anchored into the ground behind it to provide more support and stability. Anchored walls are used for heavy soil or rock landscaping that has to be restrained at high levels because they put more pressure on the wall.
