Timber: Timber sleeper retaining walls are cost effective and present attractive additions to a garden or landscape. They also present good flexibility in
that they can be easily cut to shape to accommodate different angles or incorporate built in seating for example.
Concrete: Reinforced concrete sleeper walls with metal posts are popular retaining walls due mostly to the fact they are straight forward to build and
present the most durable retaining wall solution. They also come in a variety of different colours and patterns/textures e.g timber and stone looks
Block: specially designed retaining wall blocks come in a variety of types and styles and are stacked to achieve the desired height. Offering plenty of
options in terms of shaping e.g. curved walls, and finish (wood and slate look for example)
Block & Render: Block and render walls are built with steel reinforced footings and concrete blocks, typically reinforcing with steel bars and core-filled with concrete. We are able to render finish to specification. There are also a wide range of stone cladding available that we can apply to enhance appearance.
