RETAINING WALL CONSTRUCTION GUIDELINES
- *Walls should be constructed on a compacted 10-12″ 2a limestone base (or footer).
- *Perforated drainage pipe should be placed behind every retaining wall at the base course with multiple exit points.
- *Drainage is facilitated to the pipe with 2′ in width of limestone backfill.
- *There is almost always some type of anchoring system, be it Geogrid reinforcement for block walls to wooden tie returns for tie retaining walls.
- *Proper grading, depth of footer, course setback and type of material to construct the wall with are also important factors in building a lasting structure.
- *Ask about sealing your retaining wall with eco-friendly Black Diamond Coating. It keeps the finish looking new for years and is environmentally responsible!

Redi-Rock Retaining Walls
Because of the shear size of the block (avg.=1600 lbs.) and the outstanding engineering Redi-Rock retaining walls boast, neither you or the next property owner will ever have to replace it! This sturdy retaining wall product can be used for small 4’ high walls or 80’ highway construction applications. Geogrid reinforcement can be added for the larger projects to ensure stability and longevity.
