Types of Retaining Walls in Rockville MD

Rockville Maryland Retaining Walls

Retaining walls are structures created to restrict or manipulate varying levels of soil and dirt elevation in order to achieve a more desirable landscape. With all of the types of retaining walls in Maryland it’s easy to get lost in the lists of requirements necessary for your specific needs.

Four Common Uses for Retaining Walls:

  • Aesthetics
  • Preventing Soil Erosion
  • Drainage
  • Stability

Three Types of Retaining Walls:

  • Gravity Walls – A type of retaining wall that relies on its own weight to retain soil and rocks. Characteristically thicker at the bottom, the gravity wall leans into the dirt for added stability.
  • Cantilever Walls – A wall with steel reinforcements within concrete or masonry mortar. This type of retaining wall uses fewer materials than the gravity wall but is also more complex.
  • Anchored Walls – A wall that can take the form of either of the previous two. It is a more sturdy option, using cables or tiebacks.

Materials Needed?

Different materials go better with different types of walls and their specific functions. Types of materials include but are not limited to:

  • Concrete blocks – Quick and sturdy. Comes in a wide variety of shapes, textures, and colors.
  • Poured concrete – Smooth and sleek design. More sturdy than blocks.
  • Wood – Easily accessible and blends into a natural landscape effortlessly.
  • Natural stone dry stacked – Elegant and natural. Comes in a wide variety of styles to fit just about any location!
