A soil nail wall is a stabilization method of reinforcing existing soil by installing hollow bars or threaded steel bars into slopes or cuts as wall construction proceeds from top down. Grouted bars are installed to create a stable mass of earth, first step in building a solid wall. The nailing process creates a single block of earth able to hold-back its overburden. Soil nailing is an economical means of creating shoring systems and retaining walls. Often, nailing is less disruptive than other means of constructing retaining systems.
