Retaining wall with pool on slope – Google Search
It seems that I encounter a retaining wall at least a quarter of the time I visit a home to help a client design their new pool. Retaining walls can be as small as one foot or so up to ten feet or more. As you can see in the photo above, the ground falls away quickly and clearly. There is no other way to complete this project than to use a retaining wall to hold things back once we have dug for the pool.
Small walls are usually easy, but if we get over two feet, we need to involve engineers and proper planning to ensure that the wall stays in place and meets the county’s requirements. However, once the retaining wall is in place, the pool will fit right in and the end result for this client was beautiful.
If your garden is sloping down considerably, you may have some options at the location where you want to place your pool to avoid installing a wall. An easy way to do this is to use the dirt dug up from the pool site to build a berm, or grass to gradually fall away from the pool. San Juan fiberglass pools are built strong enough to easily sit 18 to 24 inches above the ground without putting a strain on the structure of the pool.
