Timber retaining wall

Recommended Posts

Are there specific requirements for spacing the dead man ties for these?

I've seen recommendations for anywhere from four, to eight, to ten feet.

These are at twelve.

Any drain holes in the wall?

Lots of them. Everywhere you look.

See how wet the spaces between the timbers are? We had a pretty big storm yesterday morning.

Nothing I've read bothers to address drainage holes. I can understand why. There should be plenty of room for that where they're joined.

I just hope they did the right thing behind the wall. (drainage)
