Due to the very hilly terrain, retaining walls were required along a new roadway in a provincial park. Because the area is visited regularly by tourists, the designer did not want the retaining walls to be seen. The SierraScape System with a vegetated face was proposed to give the wall a natural appearance, allowing it to blend in with the existing environment. Use of local materials within the reinforced zone provided cost savings on the overall installation of the walls. The proposed culvert through the face of one of the walls was easily accommodated as per Tensar typical details. The walls are now completed and vegetation has begun. Once the vegetation has fully grown in, the SierraScape walls will look like natural steepened slopes.
