Retaining walls Adelaide retaining wall contractors build are used to level out sloping blocks, creating a more practical and usable space, as well as separating different aspects of the garden.
Due to the many sloping blocks Adelaide homes are situated on, retaining walls are a must have. Often, fencing is incorporated on top of the retaining wall; especially at the boundary of adjoining blocks.
Retaining wall contractors Adelaide residents choose from Visual Landscape Gardening have 25 years worth of experience in constructing retaining walls across Adelaide CBD and greater South Australia.
Popular types of retaining walls Adelaide homeowners choose include bluestone rock retaining walls, moss rock retaining walls, concrete sleeper retaining walls and concrete block retaining walls that come in a range of faces and colours to suit any garden design.
Bluestone Rock Retaining Walls
Adelaide bluestone rock retaining walls are the decorative, more formal choice for retaining across the front of your garden area. Add some contrasting pebbles and you have a stunning low maintenance retaining solution that will last and look great forever.
Moss Rock Retaining Walls
If you are looking at retaining a large area; width and height, moss rock retaining walls are generally the cheapest to build. Adelaide moss rocks come in a variety of sizes and are ideal for less formal landscape designs, often used across the rear of a property to retain a large ‘cut’ to a sloping block. Gaps between moss rocks can be covered with bark chip and planted out with creepers that cascade.
Concrete Sleeper Retaining Walls
Concrete sleeper retaining walls suit two purposes. For retaining the sides or rear boundary of a property where the retaining wall is not seen, plain concrete sleepers are perfect. Often Colourbond® fences are erected on top. Concrete sleepers come in a variety of colours with oxide added to the concrete mix to blend in with whatever colour scheme your garden has if they are to be visible.
Concrete sleeper retaining walls also come in a wide choice of ‘faces’ that emulate concrete blocks, slate walls or even wooden logs.
Concrete Block Retaining Walls
Concrete block retaining walls are the most popular retaining walls Adelaide residents choose. Concrete blocks are excellent for levelling out sloping blocks to provide two or more level areas of lawn and for retaining garden beds. There is an almost endless array of patterns and colours to choose from and come with ‘copping’ pavers for the top row to finish the concrete block wall off.
Retaining Wall Tips:
An important consideration when building retaining walls is water run-off.
Experienced landscapers Adelaide residents trust from Visual Landscape Gardening carefully design your retaining wall, taking into account where water will be collecting, installing storm water drains that comply with engineering specifications to eliminate flooding and pressure on your retaining wall.
