Retaining Wall Drainage Potomac MD

In Potomac, MD, a retaining wall can fix drainage and erosion control problems. This type of wall has been in use for thousands of years. It is one of the most effective ways to solve soil issues due to sloping land or groundwater problems.

Types of Retaining Walls

A retaining wall in Potomac, MD, for drainage and erosion control gives the soil structural support to prevent it from washing away. It can correct drainage issues, stabilize slopes, stop flooding, and prevent nearby structures from getting damaged.

Each retaining wall needs to be tailored to the specific soil and water conditions on the property. They are complex structures that need careful engineering to be effective. When constructed by professionals, they can last for 50 years or more.

There are four major types of retaining walls used in the local area, according to the experts at East Coast Landscape Design.

Gravity. This wall leverages the volume and the size of its own material to balance the stress of the soil behind it.

Cantilevered. These use interior reinforcement, like concrete, mortared filament or metal, to keep soil in place.

Sheet piling. This type is best for areas with clay soil and in narrow locations.

Anchored. This type of wall can actually be built in any of the other styles. What it adds is reinforced wall support.

The retaining wall and paver patio was tastefully blended into the back of our house and the contours and seams were impeccable.... The field stone terrace garden plots were truly a work of art and science... Thanks again for such a beautiful job.

We are thrilled with our new stream and pond. We waited a long time, did a lot of research and talked to many landscapers about this work. Although we were expecting your work to be good, it turned out better than our expectations. Your attitude, as well as your crew's, was professional and upbeat...
