I think I have a problem and would like to hear any feedback on this problem. I think I have a problem hope someone can shed some light on this
A egress window well retaining wall 7’ long, 5’ deep 3’ on oneside level and square to the wall of the house and 2’7" on the otherside out of square to the house, was told this was built like this to prevent the wall buckling. The wall is cinderblock toped with cap block. The well is bottomed out with pea gravel and backed filled with the dirt that was removed which is mostly clay and stone/rock, there is also some low grade top soil in the mix.
Surely a square wall would be stronger than an out of square one?
