We always specify that footings for cantilever retaining walls must be placed in excavations with the toe being poured directly against virgin soil. We never allow footings to be formed. The top of the toe is always buried with at least 12" to 18" of soil on top to make sure the bottom of the footing is below the frost line.

In cantilever retaining walls, the concrete base or footing holds the vertical masonry wall in position and resists overturning and sliding caused by lateral soil loading. The reinforcement is placed vertically in the cores of the masonry units to resist the tensile stresses developed by the lateral earth pressure.
