Design for Water

Document imprimable.pdf

The design and performance of most landscape walls are based on keeping the area behind the wall relatively dry. To ensure a quality project, the soils used must not become saturated during construction and the final design must route water away from the back of the wall. Incorporating berms and swales into the final design is an easy way to direct surface water away.

maintenir le sol situé derrière le mur sec.
Où se dirige l'eau?

During the design process, develope a thorough understanding of the site and determine where water will come from and how it will be properly managed.

During the building process, stage your materials so surface runoff is not directed improperly. It is also a good practice to cover the infill soils and the entire wall project at the end of each day to prevent water saturation if rain is in the forecast.

Any reinforced wall or walls over 4 ft. (1.2 m) in height or with slopes or other surcharges above the wall will need a toe drain. In all cases wall rock is located within the cores of the block and a minimum of 12 in. (300 mm) behind the block. The toe drain and the wall rock is designed to remove incidental water from behind the wall and is not meant as primary drainage path for above or below grade water management.
