Retaining walls do exactly that “retain” In most instances a retaining wall would be built to hold back a wedge of land or to transform your section into a more useful area (be it for a garden or car park) and provide a more useable space.
It is important to consider the design and purpose of your retaining wall and to have it properly installed by professionals to make sure you have a safe, strong and quality retaining wall that will last. Superscapes can custom-make a Retaining Wall design to suit your terrain, budget & aesthetics of your property. We offer a range of options for both Residential and commercial retaining walls to meet your own specific needs and requirements.
There are many different building materials that can be used to construct retaining walls. A timber retaining wall is the most popular and cost effective choice that can increase the value and be an attractive addition to your property. Other popular options include using block or keystone.
Unless the retaining wall is designed to specifically hold back water – your retaining wall would be constructed with drainage behind and backfilled with scoria. This can improve drainage issues and add stability to your property. Walls less than 1.5 meters do not require a Building Consent but it is still important to check with your local Council prior to commencing your wall.
Superscapes can provide you with a complete service from ground work, site preparation, demolition and removal of the old structure and installation of your new quality retaining wall.
