Retaining walls are usually used to preserve landscaped areas. Container walls serve the purpose of practical construction, from providing vertical edges for sloping areas to supporting areas. If there is a sloping backyard that risks collapsing soon, a retention wall is the best option for increasing the strength. It will help to preserve the area and utilize it for functional purposes.

Many materials can be used to build walls, the most common being wood, concrete and tiles. Although they are basically used as functional elements in a landscape, these walls can also be made of more eye-catching elements such as colored bricks, stone and timber.

Material is needed

- Concrete
- Wooden sticks
- Gravel
- Scaping fabric
- Interlocked landscaping stones
- Country
Tools are needed
- Tiles
- Framing square
- Pickaxe
- Masonry yarn
- Wheelbarrow
- Shovel
- Torpedo level


1. Excavation and layout - The task should be started by digging the area where the proposed retaining wall must be located. It must be ensured that the ground is graded on the downhill. The wooden pins are drilled on the slope side and the masonry bar is to be stretched over the inserts.

2. Reinforcement shooter - A digger must be excavated on the top of the wall. It should be filled with different colored stones and then it should be smoothed using a rake. The stones should be compressed along with a manipulation.

3. First course - The first base of concrete should be laid out on the stones. A torpedo level can be used for this purpose to ensure that the concrete is level on all sides. All remaining concrete units must be laid out while leveling the stones at the same time. This step can be quite dangerous, so the protective gloves should always be used.

4. Cutting the first block - To ensure better grip and placeholder for the vertical joints, the first block of each evenly numbered row must be cut into halves with a brick fuel and sledge hammer.
5. The second course - When the first block of all even-numbered rows has been cut, the next step is to lay out the second row of concrete units. Each block must be pushed back by a few inches to ensure a smaller slope backwards.

6. Backfill - When the height of the wall increases, it must be sure to fill the ground behind it. While the back of the wall has been filled with soil, it is also necessary to support its strength with additional materials such as cement. This extra support is always needed for walls that reach certain heights.

7. Final grade - The shooter must be filled with crushed stones on the erected part of the constructed wall. It should be filled with soil until it reaches a few inches above the last level of the wall. Preferably, the gradient of the soil and the crushed stones should be carefully lowered downwards.

Warning and tips

- If you plan to build the wall yourself, the finished blocking blocks must be selected.
- The digest's minimum depth should be ½ & # 39; and it should be wider than the size of a gate block.
- The shooter should be refilled shortly after the base layer is finished.
