Concrete Retaining Wall Installation
In most municipalities in BC, having a retaining wall larger than 4ft requires a permit. In your permit application, a drawing produced by a professional engineer must be provided. As we touched on above, retaining walls need a skilled labour to install and need to be taken seriously. If you are looking to install a retaining wall above 4ft but don’t want to go through the permit process, we have a solution for you. We can install multiple retaining walls below 4ft that have some space in between them. This can actually create a great visual aesthetic as you can have plants growing in each middle section.
Retaining walls can be made from different materials such as stones, rock, wood, green walls, and of course concrete. Retaining walls made from concrete can come in a couple of different forms. Small concrete blocks can be a great choice for many landscaping projects. These blocks can come in a wide variety of block shape, designs, and textures. A great benefit of smaller blocks is that they are great for creating curved shape for a nice organic shaped landscape. Due to its size, it is also great for projects that will have a job site with limited access.

Large concrete blocks can be great for larger scale retaining wall installations. Large sized concrete blocks don’t have the same versatility as smaller ones and can be a bit more limiting from a design perspective. If you enjoy an industrial look though, they can be the perfect thing for your space. Concrete blocks of this size will require properties with good access as larger equipment will be needed to carry the blocks.
Poured reinforced concrete walls is a great way to add a modern feel to your home. On top of being the most durable type of retaining wall, you are able to have curved surfaces and usually are not limited by the size of the job site. This type of concrete is also commonly used for the foundation of residential homes as well. Due to the skilled labour and specialized tools required for the job, this type of concrete is more on the premium side of things. It goes good with the majority of home exteriors and landscape efforts you have put into your space.
