Should I get wood retaining walls in Woodstock?
While treated landscape timbers is the least expensive material to build a retaining wall…. you will have to understand that it will eventually rot and you will have to replace it.
That is why we encourage using a more permanent alternative to build your retainer wall. The lifespan of some block products can be between 50 and 100 years when built correctly.
You won’t have to replace these in your lifespan.
So better options include interlocking concrete blocks, manufactured blocks or brick.
Both are strong and durable.
How high should you build a retainer wall?
Typically a properly built stack stone retaining wall is about 5 feet tall. And this is under optimal conditions including sandy soil and flat grid behind it.
However, in Cobb county, our heavy Georgia Clay is even heavier when wet. So your Woodstock retaining wall contractor may decide to build a retaining wall between only three and 4 foot tall.
What about drainage behind your retainer wall?
If you do not have a way to release the water pressure behind a retaining wall then eventually it will bulge or crack. Now after investing in your beautiful landscape feature that is the last thing that you want to happen, isn’t it?
That is why it is important to build in proper drainage for your wall.
- For one it is important to build your wall on compacted sand Gravel.
- Furthermore we recommend at least 12 inches of granular backfill.
- Additionally, your contractor may suggest a perforated pipe installed inside or backfilled at the bottom of the wall.
- Finally, we will also install weep hole to allow the water to drain properly.
