Retaining Walls


About Retaining Walls

Concrete retaining walls are an effective way to level patios, provide erosion control, or add a planting bed.

What Are Retaining Walls?

Concrete retaining walls serve practical as well as aesthetic purposes. Retaining walls ultimately hold back a vertical soil face for the purposes of erosion control - that is, preventing caving, sliding, or sloping of that soil. The experts at Tucker Concrete possess the specialized training and experience to successfully design and construct a concrete retaining wall that meets structural, environmental, and construction demands.

Tucker Concrete doesn't cut corners or use poor quality fillers. Through experience we have learned how to strengthen our concrete through technique and materials without sacrificing quality.

There are four main types of monolithic concrete retaining walls. These are gravity poured, semi-gravity, counterfort, and cantilever. The best suited design depends entirely on your intended application - once you’ve provided us with more information about your project, we can answer any questions and help you select the best option.
