Cost savings over traditional earth retaining wall constructions, along with a green vegetated finish can be achieved by using the Webwall system. It is ideal in situations with weak foundation soils and often allows site won materials to be used as fill, thereby saving on the cost of removal and also the cost of importing structural fills.
The retaining wall structure is formed from horizontal layers of Webwall geocell filled and built up in tiers. The front face of the structure can be filled with topsoil and then vegetated through seeding or planting to create a vegetated finish.
Webwall geocell offers many cost advantages over other retaining wall systems; including lower labour costs, cheaper materials and reduced maintenance.
