Retaining walls serve a dual purpose in landscape design, one decorative and the other functional.
Most retaining walls are built with blocks that mirror or complement the character of the home and surrounding property accents. They provide attractive visual enhancement for landscape features, but also are important to preventing erosion and holding soil in place for landscaping. Especially on steep lots and areas around rivers, streams and lakes, retaining walls frame landscape display and, protect water quality.
However, retaining walls are especially vulnerable to shifting soils and water infiltration, which undermines their stability and ultimately causes the walls to disintegrate.
Firm foundation support with Cantsink helical piers is important to creating retaining walls that stay level and intact. Cantsink’s engineers can design proper support that will withstand soil pressure behind the retaining wall and shifts underneath it. They know exactly what will make a wall secure and durable using patented helical piles that install underneath retaining wall blocks for invisible reinforcement.
Cantink’s helical piles restore crumbling walls to strength and alignment. Installation causes minimal disturbance to landscaping. Once in place, homeowners can be assured of strength and beauty that will protect their property values for many years in the future.
