The Functions of Interlocking Retaining Walls

February 7, 2023
Retaining walls are often found in places where extra support is needed to prevent the earth from moving downhill with erosion. The most basic function of a retaining wall is to battle gravity; the lateral force of the slope must be offset in the retaining wall’s design. Retaining walls can also:
  • Provide more usable land
  • Manage water runoff
  • Provide extra seating
