How deep should posts be for a retaining wall?

The hole depth should generally be as deep as 50% of the total height of your post for maximum strength and support.

What size posts do I need for a retaining wall?

For small raised garden beds, use the short 450mm SureWall Sleeper Stakes. For bigger projects, SureWall Retaining Posts come in 65mm x 450mm, 65mm x 750mm, 65mm x 1100mm, and 65mm x 2100mm diameter options. Remember that 50% of the post should be buried in the ground, so the wall height will be half the size.

How far apart should retaining posts be?

The space between your retaining posts will depend on how tall your wall is - taller walls will require tighter spacing to support the load pressing against it.
