Good day guys, I'm building a 10-ft high concrete retaining wall 12-in thick with a 10-ft radius curve. Looking for advice on forming. Was figuring on using two pieces of 3/8 inch plywood with 2x4 verticals every 12 in. Does that sound like enough support?
On the curve section should I just do verticals with bracing going to the ground at three different heights or do I need to figure out a way to make a curved wailer backing and if so how many for 10 ft high?

Thank you very much for the advice.

What does your engineer say? Around here you would need stamped plans for anything over 3 foot,

Just to clarify, you are forming both sides of the wall? If so, definitely snap ties to hold it together, probably one every 2-3 sq. feet of wall face.

If you're attempting to pour a one-sided wall 10' high, I'm not even gonna bother offering any advice..........

Yes, forming both sides with snap ties, filling in dirt behind after.
