La Jolla Steep Hillside Retaining Walls and Repair

The two methods most commonly used to seal with steep hillside and landslide repair are wood and concrete retaining walls.

Wood Retaining Walls

Wood retaining walls are are often used on extreme slopes where a concrete wall is cost prohibitive.

How it’s done

A small diameter caisson is drilled, and then a steel pipe / I Beam is installed and encased in concrete. The pre-drilled caisson gives the wall a much larger bearing footprint.

Concrete Retaining Walls

The design of a concrete retaining wall can vary greatly depending on site conditions and also the engineer designing the wall.

How it’s done

Footing size, block wall or poured in place concrete, the use of caissons are just a few of the decisions that will need to be made during the design process.
