Retaining walls in the garden
Retaining walls are a difficult building construction, therefore it is better to entrust their construction to professionals. In order to choose a place for them, it is necessary to take into account the steepness of the slope, the geology of the site, the depth of the groundwater and the material from which the wall will be constructed. There are two ways of construction: with cement lock and dry masonry.
A wall with a cement lock is the most complex structure, since its elements are connected with a cement screed. Before building such a wall, it is necessary to pour the foundation, it is necessary because of the large weight of the material. It is important to equip the water outlet, i.e. drainage system. After the foundation is ready, you can proceed to the construction of the wall itself, and limestone or crushed granite can be used as a material. It is also possible to replace brick or concrete. If desired, it can be revetted with decorative materials.
A distinctive feature of dry masonry is that it does not use a binder solution, which is why such props are quite simple to make, but limited in height.This wall usually plays a decorative role and can not be used on steep slopes due to the lack of strength characteristics. In the role of a binder material is used the usual earth, filling the space between the stones. Such a retaining wall will look very picturesque if you plant various alpine plants in it.
