Get Started

Retaining wall systems are used to hold back earth and achieve grade separation between two adjacent points at different elevations. There are many types of retaining wall systems, including concrete, steel, gabions, sheet piling, and reinforced soil. The GEOWEB® Retaining Wall System, in general, belongs to the reinforced soil category. Depending on the slope angle and site conditions, retaining wall systems are commonly referred to as gravity walls, reinforced walls, or reinforced soil slopes. GEOWEB retaining walls make it possible to stabilize soil at the face of the wall or slope with a naturally vegetated fascia.

The GEOWEB system’s open-celled terraces create a natural environment for sustainable vegetation and allow stormwater infiltration. GEOWEB walls conform well to landscape contours, are resistant to environmental degradation, and install 25-30% faster than MSE block walls.
