What is the GEOWEBA(R) Retaining Wall System?
The GEOWEB Retaining Wall System is an economical, green alternative to MSE wall systems. The GEOWEB Walls can be designed in a variety of configurations to meet specific site and reinforcement requirements. Individual wall panels consist of an interconnected network of corrosion-resistant, HDPE-based geocells that are installed in a step-like configuration to create horizontal terraces. The exposed outer fascia cells create a natural environment for select vegetation and plantings. Indigenous vegetation or specified plantings may be incorporated for aesthetic appeal and sustainability as desired.
What are the advantages of using the GEOWEB vegetated wall system to build retaining walls compared to other mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) wall systems?
