[SEAOC] Re: [SEAOC] retaining walls

Mr. Harris;

Try a company called KEYSTONE Retaining walls. They have  the system you are 
looking for. It req. a geosynthetic reinforcing material for stability. Tel #
is            (800) 747-8971.
The ICBO report is only for the product and not over 4'-0" high. You need to
get
modifications to the building code if you want to use it. I would say LA will
not 
issue one. 

You may also try piles that are cantilevered with shotcrete walls spaning
between
these piles.
