Installed for both aesthetic and functionality, retaining walls can help you make better use of your space and add architectural interest.
They can be simple and unobtrusive, create interesting shifts in dimensions, tie the landscape scene together, create new planting opportunities, or simply form an art piece on its own. There are a variety of materials to choose from when it comes to creating your own outdoor perspective.
Masonry is timeless and can fit into nearly any type of garden depending on the type of stone. They can make a garden look more natural particularly with plants cascading over the edge, alternatively they can be used to create defined zones. With so much texture, shape and colour it’s a great way to add personality.
Steel provides a slim profile, perfect for a small outdoor area where you want the beds to be defined but with less bulky perimeter.
Rock boulders can create an informal look.
Interlocking blocks or Link block overlap creating a shadow effect. They come in a variety of contemporary colours and suitable for curved walls or rounded corners.
Block can be constructed in a number of different ways. Simply stacked or capped tops with matching or contrasting materials give a more elegant appearance and dual function as seating. Coloured split face for a natural stone look, or smooth block finished with a rendered surface using either coloured oxide or painted any colour you desire.
Timber look works well for traditional and more contemporary gardens.
