Inexpensive retaining wall ideas – pros and cons of concrete. Concrete retaining wall blocks are easy to install and ideal for building soil retaining walls, reclaiming sloped land, reducing erosion and even creating feature garden walls, planter boxes and veggie patches. Curved walls have a greater setback, which causes a coning effect to occur causing your retaining wall to have its tightest radius at the top of the wall which in turn creates the need for a larger radius at the base course.
