Can fencing be used as a retaining wall?
If you want a fence installed along uneven terrain, the chances are high you’ll need an integrated retaining wall. What’s the difference between standard fencing and integrating it with a retaining wall? A special wall built for retaining is used to keep back soil, especially if there is a difference in height or sloping terrain – something we are all too familiar with in Auckland!
Fortunately, fences can be built and installed on top of retaining walls. This is referred to as fencing with integrated retaining walls. If your property is on uneven terrain or sloping ground, please ask our experts if they think you need to integrate retaining walls with your fencing.
Do I have to install a wooden gate if I have a wooden fence?
It all comes down to aesthetics. If you want to integrate a different material gate from the one used in your fence, it’s entirely up to you. We’ve built chain link fences with wooden gates, wooden fences with steel gates, and everything in between. As long as the ground is professionally prepared to provide the posts with long term support and structure, you can ask us to construct your fence out of our wide range of mixed medium materials, styles, and designs.
