Typically built from wooden landscaping timbers, cribbing retaining walls are a little more time consuming to build than a traditional retaining wall. The upside of this style is that it creates a very attractive and unique twist on the standard retaining wall design and appearance.
A cribbing retaining wall is constructed using landscape timbers that have space in between each layer. The gaps are created using short pieces of timber that have been cut off longer pieces of timber. Aside from aesthetics, using this style of retaining walls allow you to create curved walls.
