Gabion Retaining wall design on Retain Pro

Gabion Retaining wall design on Retain Pro

I am currently using the demo version of Retain pro 10 to try evaluate the program before purchasing.
I decided to test a 15 ft. high Gabion retaining wall we are designing for a residential property. I would like to find out if it is possible to change the offset reference at the base of the wall. I cannot find a way to lower the entire wall 2 ft below grade and leave the first course of gabion baskets only one foot exposed. Maybe the program does not allow this scenario? What other retaining wall programs would be best in your opinion?
Thank you.

RE: Gabion Retaining wall design on Retain Pro

RetainPro will ignore the passive resistance on the front of the buried portion of a wall. Therefore, you will need to analyze the full height of the gabions and you may have a problem with sliding.
