Take Help of SIMEX Bangladesh to Build a Retaining Wall In 2022

What is Retaining Wall?

A “retaining wall” holds back (or “retains”) the soil behind it. The pressure behind a tall wall, holding back loads of soil and water, will be enormous; considerable knowledge and experience are required before endeavoring such a project. Even a well-constructed wall would be compromised over time if the builder were to fail to provide a proper outlet for runoff, as water pressure would eventually build up to an unsustainable level.

A retaining wall additionally referred to as revetment or breast wall, is a freestanding wall that either resists some weight on one side or prevents the erosion of an embankment. It may also be “battered”—that is, inclined toward the load it is bearing.

One of the most common functions of a retaining wall is to stop erosion on hillsides as a growing plant reduces the possibility of erosion.


The material used for building a retaining wall: there are a number of options when it comes to materials for retaining walls. Some of the most common are wood, prefabricated concrete blocks, and natural stone. Poured concrete, brick, and stone veneer are also used for making a retaining wall.
