SIMPLE WALLS

For a small Gravity Wall or Garden Wall project, the components and construction should be easy.  A leveling pad made of aggregate or cement stabilized sand should be installed at the proper elevation and then the blocks stacked on the leveling pad.  Filter fabric might be installed behind the block to keep the backfill/soil from coming through the cracks.

For a taller Gravity Wall – up to maybe 3’ – the same procedure could apply but consideration must be given to the larger “failure wedge”.  This affects which block to use and whether or not to add drainage aggregate and drain pipe to allow the water behind the wall to drain away and relieve the pressure.

COMPLICATED WALLS

For taller walls or ones with slopes, loads, water issues, etc., one must decide whether to try it alone or consult call Pro Modular qualified wall contractors. Three feet doesn’t sound like much but can be just enough of a problem to be very costly if it has to be taken down and re-installed properly. If this occurs after landscaping, lighting, or other landscape improvements are completed, the cost could be very painful.

A short wall with slopes, loads, or water issues present more risks. Pro Modular welcomes you to consult our experienced team of professionals and engineers before you begin any project. We probably offer valuable engineering ideas to make your wall safer and less expensive. At Pro Modular, our mission is to do every job right the first time.
