Cantilever Walls for Basements and Landscapes
Cantilever walls usually hold back large amounts
of earth and are reinforced by a significant amount of steel. Basements
are great examples of cantilever walls. This type of retaining wall consists of
a universal thickness, attached to cantilever footings and tie beams. It’s
designed to withstand a tremendous amount of sliding and pushing from the earth
Cantilever walls are also used in
landscaping. Using treated wood posts to construct a retaining wall or
multi-level terraces can be very effective. Some people try to incorporate
railroad ties for this purpose, but a cantilever wall or barrier is ideal for this
function and goes with western landscaping.
Many different treatments can be incorporated by
using this type of wall. From flower
beds to medium verandas, wooden retainer walls can be aesthetically
pleasing and an upgrade to the landscape. For professional installation of cantilever
walls contact CalFinder to find a
