Gravity Retaining Walls

Gravity retaining walls are the most common type of retaining wall.  They are designed to prevent the movement of soil and other materials. It relies on its own weight and the force of gravity to resist the pressure of the soil behind it.  These walls are typically made of concrete or stone that range in weight from 60 pounds and above per block.  These structures are heavy hence why gravity retaining walls are an effective way to prevent erosion and stabilize soil.
