Retaining walls are used in many Southern California landscape designs in order to conform soil to a desirable level and elevation. Often homeowners will find the need to level a portion their backyard to accommodate a patio cover, guesthouse or cabana, structures which require a large flat footprint. Many homeowners underestimate the complexities of building a retaining wall, and some may even consider their construction a DIY (Do-It-Yourself) candidate. Many people don’t realize how much knowledge and skill are required to correctly calculate the weight and pressure of the soil behind the wall.
