Soil nailing is a foundation technique used for stabilizing an overly-steep soil slope.

The technique involves inserting steel bars into a pre-dilled hole in the slope and grouting them into place. The bars then provide stability to the slope.

Soil nailing is a cost-effective alternative to retaining walls, is much faster and has less impact on the environment.
