Any retaining wall in excess of three in height is required to be designed by a structural engineer to make sure it will support the loads placed upon it. The City may be able to provide a geotechnical soils report to assist your contractor or engineer in the design of the retaining wall. We can also provide a grading and drainage plan to ensure that your improvements do not impact adjacent properties. Contact the Building Inspection Department at 972 292-5301 if you have any questions.
