Retaining walls, as the name suggests, are built to retain the soil and gardens in the area. We give a choice of three different types of retaining walls: block walls, sandstone walls and hardwood retaining walls.
Block Walls: Block Retaining walls are the standard, multi-purpose walls constructed in your yard. Some of its benefits are that it can be made into any shapes or sizes and other structures can be built over it. For example, in the case of pools, water features can be built onto retaining wall structures. Regarding the finishes, we can either finish the rendering using the traditional cement mortar wall or do natural looking stone cladding.
Sandstone Block Walls: Natural Sandstone retaining walls can be used to build both beautiful and retaining walls. Natural sandstone has its own drainage mechanism since sandstone is a porous material. It also doesn’t require concrete footings like we use for building block walls. Therefore, it is considerably cheaper than block retaining walls.
Hardwood Retaining walls: Timber retaining walls are cheap and easy to install. They are mostly used to construct short retaining walls. Treated timber retaining walls can last up to two decades and give out its natural look to its surroundings. One major disadvantage is that since timber is available only in straight pattern, it cannot be used for making curved walls. We recommend not to go over 1.2meter high when constructing hardwood retaining walls.)
