The main purpose of a retaining wall structures is to help create ground stability in elevated, sloped and unlevel surfaces. A retaining wall will eliminate ground movement from various natural and unnatural elements. There are many types of materials that retaining walls can be structurally built from to provide ground stability. Some of the more popular materials include concrete blocks, natural stone boulders and rocks. Timber is still commonly used for retaining wall structures, however the life span of timber is limited, its low resistances to weather conditions and the attraction to termite infestation, cannot compare to the long term durability attributes of concrete or natural stone blocks.
Retaining walls can also be installed for their decorative appeal. You may have land that is sloping and going to waste.
