Strong Retaining Walls in Canberra

Retaining walls can play several vital roles in the landscaping process. They can serve as a central, eye-catching feature or transform a tricky sloping yard into a dramatic and functional system of tiers. What’s more, retaining walls can be made in various styles and sizes, and from many materials, including wood, concrete, rocks, and bricks. We build retaining walls in Canberra according to your exact requirements and taste –tell us your vision, and we’ll make it a reality.

Wood Retaining Walls

Wood is one of the most popular options for retaining walls because it is affordable, highly effective and looks great in the right setting. It is usually supplied as thick planks or beams, which means that concrete or synthetic materials can be used according to the same techniques for a similar functional and aesthetic result. If you’re unsure which material is best for your garden, our landscapers can help you decide between the options:

  • For a natural look, treated pinewood is hard to beat. It’s a beautiful colour, so it blends seamlessly with the surrounding trees and gardens. Treatment ensures that the wood remains strong, even after years spent outdoors, by protecting it from pests, disease, and bad weather.
  • Alternatively, you might prefer real ex-railway sleepers, which are equally durable but have a darker, more rustic, and eroded look.
  • Concrete sleepers are exceptionally durable, easy to clean and resistant to wear.

Concrete, Brick and Stone Retaining Walls in Canberra

If an angular retaining wall made of wood, synthetic or concrete sleepers isn’t what you have in mind for your garden, we can all design and build retaining walls made of blocks, bricks, or rocks. You can also opt for concrete, but not in sleeper form. The benefits of concrete, brick and stone include:

  • Plain concrete retaining walls are solid – they’ll even survive a flood! Plus, they’re ideal if you need to create a curb for your garden.
  • Segmented walls are commonly built using specialised retaining wall blocks in Canberra and come with many benefits, including flexibility of design, durability, and attractiveness. We can design segmented retaining walls and rock cages to suit your requirement perfectly.
  • Bricks (faced or plastered) and stone can create almost any shape retaining wall or raised flower bed for your landscaped garden.
