Retaining walls can be used to add design, aesthetic appeal, drainage or erosion control, and function to a landscaping design. There are a variety of types of retaining walls available including natural Sandstone, interlocking block walls, hardwood and soft wood walls, stone pitched walls and engineered retaining walls. Each of these different materials is available in a wide variety of colours and will add a different style to your overall landscaping design or home.
All retaining walls must have sufficient drainage installed behind them including drainage gravel, filter wrap for silt retention and an agiline at the base to help get the water away.
A well built retaining wall is a great investment because it retaining land which is heavy and keeps your property and your neighbours in place and most importantly everyone safe.
