You’ll Get Any Type of Retaining Wall That You Need

Our team of professional installers have the skill to build all types of retaining walls.

Such options include:

  • gravity retaining walls
  • counterfort retaining walls
  • cantilever retaining walls
  • semi-gravity retaining walls
  • non-gravity cantilevered walls
  • prefabricated modular gravity walls
  • anchored walls
  • hybrid systems
  • gabion retaining walls
  • mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) walls
  • piled retaining wall
  • crib retaining walls

Whatever need or specific situation you may have, we’ll match that with the best suited structure.

Here’s how we do that:

Anchored retaining walls for holding very high soil pressure

Anchored retaining walls are designed with cables that sink deep into the soil at the bottom and top of your wall.

Such a design makes it useful for holding soil under very high pressure.

Moreover, the wall can be constructed in multiple interesting styles to give an appealing look.

Cantilevered retaining walls for using less material

If you need a gravity type wall, but want to use less material for a lower cost, then a cantilevered wall can be an alternative.

This design uses either concrete or mortared masonry with steel reinforcement.

It has a backward “L” shape which creates a critical balance between the pressures of the soil applied to the vertical portion and the horizontal part. This shape is what makes it possible to use less material than a gravity wall.

Piling/ post retaining walls for strong support

Post retaining walls have long piles going deep into the ground.

Such deep poles make the wall strong enough to resist earth’s pressure. The deeper you place the poles, the higher you can make the wall.

Note that walls higher than 1.5 metres would require a building consent.

Gravity retaining walls for a simple solution

Gravity retaining walls offer a simple solution by holding back earth with the weight of the wall.

As simple as it may be, it still requires proper planning to know exactly how to build a strong enough structure. The design will depend on the type of soil being retained and the material used for the wall.

Some types of structures may also require council consent.

Gabion retaining walls for a practical solution

Gabions are a functional solution using stone, concrete, or brick to fill a galvanized steel mesh.

Despite the functional look, they can be designed to be as pretty as any other wall. This is done by using various types of interesting stones with appealing shapes and colours.

If other materials are hard to find in your location, then gabions would be a practical option.

Concrete retaining walls for longevity

Such walls are also gravity based.

The structure is built on a concrete base and may use either a stacking or interlocking pattern. Plastered blocks or traditional grey 300×150 mm blocks are usually used here.

Compared to wood and other materials, concrete would last for a long time.

Timber retaining walls for a low-cost option

Depending on availability, timber walls can be a simple and cheap option.

To make such walls durable, they are designed with strong piles. And with proper treatment, they will last for decades, besides looking attractive.
