Laneway Ditch Retaining Wall....


Laneway Retaining Wall over Ditch by the Township Road needs Replacing.. It's presently of a wood construction.. The Plan is to use the existing wall as a Form on Oneside and Dig a Trench and Pour Concrete on the Inside.. Need to Calculate how much cement will be needed say 18" Thick by 13' Long by 4' High... The Cost Factor is whether to (1) Truck in the Ready Mixed Cement or (2) Required amount of Bags and Mix on site.. Thoughts & Opinions Appreciated, Cheers Thanks

1.5x4x13 / 27= yards x 2000lbs/ 60 lb bags.

2.8 yards call it 3.

That would be enough for a truck order.

But that is not how I would build a retaining wall, dig the trench and pour a footing 18+ wide by 12" high with rebar hooks and then pour a 8" thick wall on the outside edge of the footing with drain ports and back fill with gravel next to the wall and dirt behind that.
