Reinforced Retaining Walls are built by gradually increasing the force applied to the soil behind the wall and the wall is reinforced by using high-tensile-strength reinforcing materials such as geotextiles.

Concrete Cantilever retaining wall. These retaining walls are constructed using reinforced concrete. 

Counter-fort / Buttressed retaining wall is a cantilever wall with counterforts, or buttresses, attached to the inside face of the wall to further resist lateral thrust. Some common materials used for retaining walls are treated lumber, concrete block systems, poured concrete, stone, and brick.

Soil nailed retaining wall construction is a technique used to bring soil stability in areas where landslides might be a problem. Soil nail can prevent landslides by inserting steel reinforcement bars into the soil and anchoring them to the soil strata.

Anchored retaining walls are vertical retaining walls supported by an “anchor,” or dead weight, fixed in the ground on the uphill side and tied by a cable, chain or rod, which may be inserted into the ground by boring.
