Retaining Walls Installation in Toronto: Turning Your Design Ideas into Reality
Generally, retaining walls are freestanding structures, which help to hold and resist the lateral pressure of soil and different kinds of aggregates. If there is a drastic change in levels, probably you will need a retaining wall to separate your living space with a boundary and protect it from landslides or rockslides.
There are several types of material that can be used in retaining wall construction. The most common are: timber wood, concrete blocks, and armour stones. This kind of work must be performed under professional supervision in compliance with Ontario regulation acts and building codes, as with any type of structural engineering.

The Process of Building a Retaining Wall, and How to Do It Right?
Turning retaining wall ideas into results is an involved process. First, we prepare a solid base, which is the most important step in the retaining wall installation process. After, we build the retaining wall itself. Even if it’s an armour stone retaining wall with big gaps in between stones, it’s important to add crushed stone beside the wall. This will help to provide proper drainage.
Of course, there are much more important things to keep in mind during construction, including reinforcement grid directing pressure downwards, rather than against the blocks or timber. Thanks to many years of experience in landscaping, we know exactly how to build the best retaining walls and Oaks Home Services is the best company in Greater Toronto Area to entrust with this task!
