Many homes and businesses are built on land that is less than ideal, with awkward slopes and hills that restrict usage. If your home or business is built on property with sloping issues, the Des Moines retaining wall experts at Brilliant Borders can help you design a retaining wall to improve the usability of your property while adding aesthetic value. Brilliant Borders can handle retaining wall construction projects of all sizes and scopes.

A retaining wall is a carefully engineered system designed to work against gravity. A retaining wall is used to stabilize slopes and prevent soil or gravel from eroding or sliding downward into other areas. A properly designed retaining wall can transform an otherwise unusable area into a functional space. Planning and design of a retaining wall are essential.

Consider These Retaining Wall Factors:

  • The type of soil behind the retaining wall and the height of the retaining wall
  • Any extra pressure that may be placed on the retaining wall
  • Objects of significant weight that may be located on the slope, such as a vehicle or structure
