This course provides an overview on the parts that create a contract for non-engineered/licensor provided design segmental retaining wall (SRW) systems in a residential setting. In addition, this course overviews material standards and construction criteria that a landscape contractor should be cognizant of during the preconstruction, construction, and post construction phases of a non-engineered SRW or a licensor’s provided design SRW. In this presentation, a non-engineered SRW and licensor provided design SRW is a system in which a design from a licensed design professional is not required in order for construction of the wall to begin.
