What are the requirements for a retaining wall?
Requirements for a wall depend on several different factors:

  • The height of soil which needs to be retained
  • How close to the wall any imposed load on the retained soil would be
  • What measures might be required to fit the wall into the overall development (such as aesthetics or the need to preserve any existing trees)

Geogrid-reinforced Retaining Walls
Geogrid reinforcements should be placed continuously throughout their embedment lengths and placed side-by-side to provide 100% coverage at each level. They are anchored at the retaining wall and extend deeply into the soil behind the wall. The geogrid works with the compacted soil and/or stone behind the wall to stabilize the soil and keep it from moving forward and pushing against the back of the block wall.

Walls don't have to be very high to warrant the use of geogrid reinforcing. Even walls as high as 3 ft. can greatly benefit from being reinforced. For smaller residential applications, the minimal additional cost is excellent insurance to ensure that the wall is structurally sound and will not deflect over the years.

Geogrid reinforcing should be used (or may even be required) for reinforcing segmental retaining walls whenever the retaining walls are higher than 3 feet, the retaining wall slopes, there are surcharges (any downward pressures imposed above the wall level, such as parking areas, etc.), the retaining walls are created by moving soil to create additional useable space, or for walls surrounding swimming pools when the wall is being used to hold back soil.
