Product Description

Retaining walls have been used for thousands of years; whether in the construction of terraced fields on a steep slope, or a railway cutting through a hillside, a retaining wall is used in some form or another. The water table will have design implications on the wall, the pressure of which can be alleviated by providing drainage and weep holes, depending on the soil conditions.
