When Do You Need to Replace Your Old Wood Retaining Walls?
Safety hazards. There are many reasons to replace an old wooden retaining wall, but this is clearly a must once the wall is a hazard to yourself or others. How can you be sure they are hazardous? Frist, there are typically visual cues like boards splitting apart, grass growing between the joints, soil falling out, or rotten wood that can be picked away with your hands. There may even be a negative lean on the wall. This means when you look at it sideways, it’s leaning too far over – one heavy rainfall could cause it to collapse.
