How to Install a Concrete Sleeper Retaining Wall


1. Layout the Area Where You Will Build the Wall

Clear the area of any trees, bushes, shrubs and any other obstructions. Be sure the area is level for the concrete sleeper retaining wall installation. Measure and mark the areas where you will dig the holes for the posts.

2. Prepare the Base for the Wall

Use a mini-loader with an auger to dig the holes for the posts. Be sure to leave enough space to backfill once the concrete sleeper retaining wall installation is complete.

3. Concrete the Posts into Place

Ensure each hole is level, straight and the same depth. Once you place the posts, make sure that they are flush with the other holes and at an equal distance. Fill the holes with concrete to set them in place.

We recommend that you work with one post at a time, making sure it stands level before moving to the next post. As you work with the next post, make sure it is level with the previous post. Continue to check the distance between the posts to ensure they are equally apart.

Wait for a minimum of one day to allow the concrete to completely set and dry.

4. Adding the Concrete Pads for the Sleepers

Putting a concrete pad behind each post allows the sleepers to sit level, ensuring level concrete sleeper retaining wall installation. Go along and place a level pad of concrete behind each post to create a level foundation for the bottom sleepers.

Again, wait for at least three days to allow the concrete pads to set and dry before placing the sleepers on them.

5. Install the Sleepers

Place the foundation sleepers on the pads against the posts. If you did not use concrete pads, be sure to pack them flush to the bottom of the posts to properly adjust and even out the height. You should install an agi pipe in the back and base of the wall to allow any water to escape.

Allow the wall to set for one week before backfilling.

6. Carefully Backfill the Wall

Complete your concrete sleeper retaining wall installation using crushed rock to backfill the wall. Fill only to the top of the bottom sleeper. Insert a soil plug and continue to backfill with dirt. Be sure you simply place the dirt or fill; do not push the dirt from behind the wall. You can move the dirt by hand or you can use a Bobcat or other machinery to make the job easier.

Which Projects Do You Recommend Concrete Retaining Wall Sleepers For?

Concrete retaining wall sleepers can be utilised in numerous ways, not just to retain earth that has been banked up following a landscaping project. They can be put to use to make walls rapidly.  Perhaps you'd like them at the perimeter of your property instead of a fence.  Or, they could be used to shut off a part of your garden you don't want to look at from your home.

Of course, they come into their own when they are used to form retaining walls against a slope.  So, they are frequently put to use for terracing or levelling projects. That said, you could just as easily use them to make raised planters that will add height to your beds. They are certainly ideal for garden edging projects or for making vegetable beds.

In terms of hard landscaping, they can also be used to form convenient steps and walkways, making them ideal for both domestic and commercial projects.

What Benefits Can I Expect of My Concrete Retaining Wall Sleepers Once They Are Installed?

Because of their modular nature, concrete retaining wall sleepers are much easier to work with than other materials.  Compared with other landscaping materials, such as stone, for example, construction is much quicker and easier. However, this is not the least of their many advantages.

If you were to opt for a timber sleeper, for example, then it would eventually rot.  Even if it were kiln dried and had a wood preservative applied to it, timber sleepers rot eventually. However, since this does not occur when concrete is exposed to moisture, you can expect much longer-lasting results.

Furthermore, concrete can be made with a wide range of finishes and colours.  This added flexibility is something which is not always possible with many of the alternatives. Despite these major plus points, concrete sleepers are extremely affordable, making them the ideal material for most retaining wall jobs.

Are There Any Corrosion Issues I Need to Take Into Account With Concrete Sleepers?

Concrete is an extremely durable material.  This means that will not corrode in the way that metal might rust or timber might rot, for example. That said, the posts you use with concrete sleepers can be liable to some forms of corrosion over time. This is particularly the case when they will be exposed to excessive amounts of water, especially salty water from sea spray. In some cases, you will need to consider the reinforcements of your sleepers where seawater might be present. These issues can be overcome.  In order to ensure the right material selection, we'd advise talking to us in more depth about which products to opt for.  This is particularly relevant if you intend using them by the coast.

What Maintenance Issues Are There With Concrete Retaining Wall Sleepers?

As they are made from a durable material, there is virtually nothing you need to do to keep concrete wall sleepers in mint condition. Just cleaning them once in a while will preserve their appearance by removing any build-up of mould or moss. Some people notice a white powdery appearance on their sleepers. This is salt that is drawn out by water evaporating after rainfall. Simply scrub them with a diluted acid solution and then water them down thoroughly.  Then, they will look as good as new.
