Galvanized steel roof panel retaining wall support

Casey60March 9, 2014

Would like build a retaining wall using galvanized steel roof panels and just wondering how I can make it sturdy for garden bed only. Cement in 2 x 6 posts? How far apart? Any ideas?

It is veneered/ faced with galvanized sheeting.
There is a wood frame and back boards behind the sheeting.

We've used this detail a couple of times. It's a great way to impart an industrial look or just dress up a plain jane wood retainer.

Since this got bumped up, it is worth mentioning for clarification that 2" thickness lumber is not suitable for structural members when in direct contact with the ground. It will not last any appreciable time. It is treated for above grade applications where it is meant to dry after rains. Also, it will last much longer when painted. For ground contact, structural, you would need to use 4" x 4" treated minimum.
