Why Retaining Walls?

Many types of property owners need retaining walls for many different reasons. For example, a retaining wall can provide support and prevent erosion and landslides for sloped areas with a large change in grade of soil levels or certain types of soil. Retaining walls can also transform areas into more useable spaces and add structure and visual interest to properties.

Durable Designs

ReCon Wall Systems has developed an intermediate, large-block segmental gravity wall design for projects up to 22 feet in height and a fill wall design (mechanically stabilized earthen walls) with geosynthetic support for heights up to 45 feet. These designs provide tremendous mass and use channel locking keys, which remove the need for mortar. ReCon Wall Systems are also a wet cast block product, allowing for very substantial heat and frost temperature ranges and water submersion.

Here’s a short overview video and cross-section diagram of the wall types:

How Do Other Types Of Retaining Walls Compare?

Other retaining walls, such as stone and mortar, are much more prone to cracking and can fail over time. Also, they require a much larger footing, often as wide as they are tall. Cast-in-place retaining walls, which can also fracture over time, require much more labor to install, as they need to have forms constructed on-site before pouring concrete and require a larger footprint.
