Re: Joints in retaining walls

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
>FWIW I once saw a cast concrete site retaining wall
(i.e. not a building wall) somewhere in California,
about 6' or 7' tall, with a fine, full-height vertical
crack every 10', aligned with the inserts for a metal
railing.  Not a "real" joint in sight!<

Why not do it like this?  Unless appearance is a big
consideration.
