Retaining Wall Install Guidelines
Step 2 - Leveling Pad Installation
Step 1 - Base Course Preparation
side, front-to-back and across three full blocks with a hand level. A rubber mallet may be used to level and align the blocks. Step 4 - Core and Drainage Fill
Beginning at a point of the wallâ€™s lowest elevation, excavate a trench down the length of the wall that will accommodate at least 6" of base material and 6" of block embedment. As a rule of thumb, for every 8" to 10" of wall height, 1" of block should be buried with at least a minimum of 6" base course embedment. Step the trench up or down with respect to adjacent grade.
Place and compact a minimum of 6" base material to 95% Standard Proctor. Verify the base is level with a transit or hand level. Be aware the base material (commonly referred to as road base or base aggregate) will vary from region to region. Step 3 - Base Course Installation
Large compaction or construction equipment should be kept a minimum of 3' from the back of the wall. This 3' area should be compacted with a vibratory plate compactor. Step 6 - Capping a Wall Place 3/4" to 1" clean aggregate (crushed rock) within the cores and a minimum of 12" behind the blocks. This creates a drainage zone and Stone Columns that helps to unify and maximize the performance of the wall. Step 5 - Successive Course Installation
The width of the trench should be a minimum of 24", and as wide as 34" depending on block type. Based on the type of application and what is retained, the depth of the leveling pad may vary. If necessary, consult with an engineer. After excavating the native soil and prior to adding base material, remove loose material from the trench and compact.
The Universal Cap has both a finished surface and palletized surface. The finished surface should be exposed on the top course to complete the wall application. The base course will consist of base block. Use a string line behind the tail of the block for alignment on straight wall applications. All blocks should rest firmly on the pad and be centered to allow 6" of base material in front and 6" behind the Base Block. Level each block, side-to-

abuts the two blocks below it. Place core and drainage fill as in Step 4. Place the backfill material behind the drainage rock in maximum of 8" lifts and compact to 95% Standard Proctor. Repeat this process for each successive course.
Prior to adding successive courses, the top of each block needs to be clean and free of foreign material. Center the block and pull it forward until the Anchor Bar
The adhesive used for securing cap units should have a high rubber content. Check with your supplier to determine which concrete adhesive is recommended. To ensure permanent placement of the upper blocks, adhesive should be used.
Step 1 - Preparation for Grid
Step 2 - Preparation for Backfill
The area behind the wall on the grid layer needs to be level with the top of the block and compacted to 95% of the Standard Proctor (ASTM D698).
Place the next course of block. Pull the grid back and stake it so it is taut and free of wrinkles.
Depending on the wall design, the length and the number of grid layers will vary. Generally, grid strength is in the roll direction. As it is unrolled, it is in the same direction it should be installed. Biaxial grid is another option in which the strength is the same against roll direction as it is in the roll direction.
Step 4 - Backfill and Compact Step 2 - Grid Placement
Typical Cross Section
Place the grid as close to the face of the wall without exposing it after successive placement of blocks. Ensure the grid is placed with the strength direction perpendicular to the wall. Check grid manufacturer specifications for proper grid placement instructions.
Place 3/4" to 1" clean aggregate (crushed rock) within the cores and a minimum of 12" behind the blocks. Place and compact backfill on the grid in lifts no greater than 8". When possible, it is recommended the backfill is deposited directly behind the wall and pushed to the end of the grid to ensure it remains taut and wrinkle-free.
