Retaining Walls


Retaining WallThe UK's Leading Installers of Retaining Walls

Traditional masonry walls are an ancient method of ground engineering, with design and structural concepts that remain effective today. Whilst we have the capability to design and build this type of retaining wall, we will also apply our knowledge, resources and experience in providing other innovative forms of earth retention and ground strengthening with very pleasing results for our London and UK clients.

With considerable and unrivalled ground engineering and retaining wall design expertise, Geolex are an industry-leading ground stabilising and retaining wall company. We offer a comprehensive range of retaining walls, tie-backs, earth and masonry reinforcement, soil nailing and piled walls to name but a few - so we can always find a perfect solution for your site, no matter where you are in Kent, London, Surrey, Sussex or anywhere else in the UK.

Incredibly flexible and adaptable and able to be designed into wider solutions that include other piling and ground stabilisation works, earth retaining walls are the major element of our business and our area of speciality.

A wide range of retaining wall installation services across the UK

As one of the UK's leading ground stabilisation companies, specialising in a range of retaining wall design, soil slope stabilising and earth retaining structure solutions, we have helped a wide variety of commercial and industrial clients maximise available building space or extend open spaces, such as yards and car parks. We provide uncomplicated solutions that can be constructed and designed to easily match surrounding aesthetics.

Specialising in ground engineering and earth retention projects throughout Kent, London, Sussex, Surrey and the rest of the UK, we design and construct a wide variety of retaining walls, including:

  • Gravity walls
  • Reinforced soil walls
  • Gabion mesh structures
  • Ground stabilising walls

Gravity WallGravity walls 

One of the classic retaining walls that relies on gravity and a “batter” setback leaning the structure into the soil to be retained; friction does the rest! Our high quality, durable and proven gravity walls are constructed from a  range of materials, including mortarless stone, masonry units, geosynthetics, timber and concrete crib or with precast facings or precast concrete cells which are then filled with free draining stone. The gravity walls we supply and install can also be supplemented and further strengthened by installations such as soil nailing.

Crib walls are one of the oldest gravity wall systems. Designed and manufactured to wrap around and accommodate unique curvature of the surrounding landscape, crib walls are a very simple yet effective way of stabilising slopes and providing reliable support.

Cantilevered WallReinforced soil walls 

Reinforced soil retaining structures are in many instances a viable option to many traditional retaining wall options, including reinforced concrete and piling which, in most instances, can offer substantial savings to UK clients, in both construction time and system cost, combined with versatility.

We specialise in the design and installation of many types of reinforced soil wall systems which make use of a combination of soil reinforcement geogrids securely connected to attractive facing units, including dry laid concrete modular facing blocks.


Gabion Mesh WallGabion mesh walls

A specific type of our gravity retaining walls, rock gabions are wire mesh boxes filled with rough cut quarried stone or a combination of stone and topsoil to promote vegetative growth depending upon individual landscaping requirements.

The mesh cages and rough stonework of our retaining walls form a containment system, where the horizontal component of the self weight of the filled gabions act against overturning and horizontal forces, and can be designed to be resistant to erosion in stream bank situations.

We supply rock gabions to customers across London, Midlands, Kent, Surrey and Sussex, including London, Ashford, Canterbury, Maidstone, Southampton, Portsmouth, Tunbridge Wells, Wolverhampton, Lewes, Guildford and Hastings.
