Retaining Walls

Required Prerequisite Courses:  Attendees to this workshop should previously have taken at least ONE of the following:
1 day walling workshop, 2 day walling workshop, experience working with a certified waller, extensive DSWA style walling experience.

Here in the Northeast, many of the walls people are building are retaining walls. While all the principals of a free standing wall apply there are additional rules and methods to follow when building retaining walls. The focus needs to be on a sound structure that will last for generations. The stone may be round field stone or flatter ledge stone. The rules and principals learned here can be applied to all retaining walls whether hand-built or built with large stones and equipment.

Learn tips and techniques for structurally sound retaining walls.

Licensed Landscape Architects can receive 7.5 LA CES credits for participating in this workshop.
