Unshakeable Foundations For Retaining Walls in Winnipeg

Hold the earth at bay, protect your property, and increase functional space on your yard, with a solid helical pile retaining wall foundation

The Premier Support For Your Retaining Wall

Retaining walls have a tough job. Dirt is heavy and can exert tens of thousands of pound of force. That means an ultra-strong foundation isn't just "nice to have", it's essential. Helical piles have taken center-stage as the foundation solution for retaining walls.

  • Unique design delivers large load capacities in a streamlined package, eliminating site disturbance

  • Can be easily installed horizontally into hillsides and cuts to deliver incredible holding strength

  • Durable "helix plate" anchors firmly into soft soils, ensuring long-term performance


Why Helical Pile Foundations for Retaining Walls In Winnipeg?

  • Eliminates Excavation & Mess

    Installing a typical foundation for a retaining wall can involve serious disruption to your land. Helical piles skip the hassle and allow you to have a secure foundation installed with zero (or minimal) digging or disturbance to your property. We even use ground mats to protect your grass from our equipment!

  • Perfectly Suited For Loose Soils

    Much of the soil we face in Winnipeg and throughout Manitoba is comprised of soft, loose, wet material. These soil conditions can be a big challenge for foundations. Collapsing dirt makes excavating for concrete a chore and long-term performance can suffer in poor soils. A helical foundation, conversely, delivers immovable support in the most treacherous soil conditions this province can bring.

  • Strong & Durable Support

    Dirt is heavy, especially when it becomes saturated with water. If your retaining wall isn't properly supported by a strong foundation, it will likely experience structural problems and even collapse. With a helical foundation, your wall will be better equipped to resist even the most strenuous loads from saturated dirt and will hold fast for many years into the future.

A Foundation in 1-2-3 for Your Retaining Wall


Helical piles are installed at a horizontal angle into the hillside or cut where your retaining wall is to be installed



Adjustable pile adapters are used to transition from the helical piles to your retaining wall, delivering unparalleled strength and durability


Your retaining wall is now equipped with a firm foundation that will protect it from movement, shifting, and failure
