Ashburn VA Retaining Walls

What is an Ashburn VA Retaining Wall?

An Ashburn VA retaining wall is a wall that 'retains' soil. The wall holds the earth back. Lots of materials can be used to make retaining walls: pavers, bricks, concrete blocks, poured concrete, wood, and just rocks. There are advantages and disadvantages to each of these materials. Deciding what material to use is something our professionals can help with during your free estimate.

Retaining Wall Construction: Gravity or Reinforced?

To build the proper type of retaining wall several factors come into play. Is the soil sandy, clay, or something in between? What is above the wall: a driveway, a tree, or a pool? How tall is the wall? Will the landscaping around the wall be level or sloped? Are there drainage issues? All of these factors will determine what type of retaining wall can be used.

Reinforced retaining walls are walls that have some type of reinforcement for more strength. This improves the wall's ability to support the soils behind it.

Gravity retaining walls are walls that use their own weight and angle to retain the soil. These are typically short in height. Concrete Block retaining walls are ideal for this type of wall. They can be stacked to form an angle or setback. This setback helps the wall support the soils behind it.
