Retaining Wall Installation
Retaining wall installation is a way for property owners to prevent soil erosion from damaging a particular area of soil. A retaining wall will hold back the soil behind it and prevent it from being blown away by the wind or washed away by the rain. Retaining walls are typically used on properties that have a hill or slope. Here are a few steps that you should follow to install a retaining wall properly.
Retaining wall installation involves several steps if you want to do it right, which most people do. The first thing you’ll want to do is figure out where you want the retaining wall to sit on your property, then you dig two feet back towards the hill you want to protect your soil from.
The next step is marking up where exactly you want your retaining wall to sit within the space from which you removed the soil. From there you will dig a trench a couple of inches deep and wide enough to fit whatever materials you are using to build your wall.
From there it gets a little trickier, which is why hiring a team of contractors who specialize in retaining wall installation will help a lot. You’ll need to make sure the ground you are about to build on is level and then lay stone dust for the first layer of your retaining wall to sit on. After the dust is laid, you are ready to start building the wall.
