Types of Retaining Walls - Cantilever, Counterfort & Gravity .

Gravity retaining walls depend on their own weight and any soil resting on the concrete in resisting lateral earth forces. They are generally economical up to 10 feet in height for cast concrete structures. Usually are sufficiently massive to be unreinforced. Monolithic cast walls are generally formed on site.
