A Solid Foundation: Retaining Wall Systems

The focus of this article is on segmental retaining wall (SRW) systems. The options for SRWs have expanded while efficiencies and large supply networks have helped contain costs even as general construction costs rise. The article begins with a look at wall design, e.g., drainage, reinforcement, block types; material selection; performance; and availability of resources. The abridged directory at the end of the article lists resources, particularly those that can be located openly on the internet via wall block company Web sites. The firms listed offer downloadable design, cost and/or installation information on their Web sites.
