Retaining walls can be built from a variety of materials and can require the specialist skills of a concreter, a brick layer or a landscaper, who may or may not have the knowledge and experience needed to build a structural sound retaining wall. For this reason, state building authorities require retaining wall builders to have special licences. In many cases a licensed structural engineer will have to build or oversee construction of your retaining wall or your builder will need to have a specialised licence.
You may need to hire a licensed structural engineer to design your retaining wall in your state. If a building permit is needed, your retaining wall will probably have to be built by a licensed builder. Contact your local council to find out if other local regulations apply.
