Retaining Walls While the state of Nevada is geographically not prone to Hurricane or is in the path of torrential rain or earthquakes, some places could nonetheless require a retaining wall for a reason or two. One, it could be purely preventive – to keep the chances of landslides at bay. Another, it can be for decorative purposes, since retaining walls can be designed and built using materials known to possess aesthetic merits.

Whichever is your intended purpose, we at Advanced Lawn and Landscape can provide your desired retaining wall type using the most ideal materials and building techniques available. With numerous successful projects behind our name, you’re guaranteed to have walls that are beautiful, functional, and will last for decades to come.

Retaining Wall Benefits

Retaining Walls Retaining walls are ubiquitous concrete structures that one can find in hillsides, backyards, commercial spaces, and anywhere there is a need to contain a potential landslide. They are also built to enhance a site’s functionality. For example, a barren and hilly slope can be transformed into a veritable pocket garden surrounded by a beautiful retaining wall.

Retaining walls also increase the market value of properties, more so if they’re done by expert landscape contractors. If any building or structure in your property is located very near a sloped area, installing retaining walls can prevent costly landslide damage in case of an earthquake or heavy downpour. They are practically maintenance-free so you won’t have to worry about spending too much once the walls are built.

All in all, investing on retaining walls is one of the best decisions that you can possibly make as a property owner.

Retaining Wall Types that We can Build

Different topographies and design needs require different retaining wall types. Accordingly, we can create any of these wall types based on your exact needs:

  • Gravity wall. Gravity walls are ideal for slopes of up to four feet in height. They are generally thickest at the base and gradually thinning as they go up. They lean against the soil in a process called battering. Segmental retaining wall blocks are commonly used in this wall type.

  • Retaining Walls
  • Counterfort wall. If you’re dealing with slopes exceeding 25 feet in height, going for counterfort walls is your best option. These walls are proven to effectively hold earth with the help of vertical concrete webs called counterforts, which are placed at the back of the wall. This support system dramatically increases the walls’ strength and ensuring adequate protection against landslides.

  • Cantilever wall. These single-layered walls get their strength from steel reinforcement installed at the base and surface. They are built with uniform thickness to ensure even strength and support. They are also ideal for tall slopes.

  • Sheet pile wall. If your problem area has a limited space where wide barriers are not feasible to be used, then this is your best pick. Sheet pile walls are held together by soil and reinforced by a cable and a tieback anchor.
