Styles and materials of retaining walls have come a long way in the last few years. Gone are the days of installing the common old wooden sleeper. Not only are they dull and boring, but they just dont perform over time. At Adelaide Retaining Walls we only use the latest materials that come in numerous styles and colours to compliment your house.
We only use the best possible sleepers available. This means we use and recommend Outback Sleepers due to their quality and continued drive to be the best Sleeper Suppliers in Australia. Below are just a few of the popular styles available in their range.
At Adelaide Retaining Walls we use and recommend several types of blocks for walling depending on the individual site situation. Some of the smaller walls can be built with rubble filled blocks and larger walls can be engineered with concrete filled blocks and footings.
Heathstone • Keystone • Adbri • Versa Loc • Versa Wall
Rendered Besser Block Walls are a fantastic way to create different shapes and sizes and still maintain absolute retaining wall effectiveness. These walls can be finished in a number of different methods from texture coats to sand mortar style finish. These walls are built on solid concrete foundations with extensive drainage systems to prevent water penetration or cracking of the rendered finish.
Gabion walls. This is a simple wall made up of wire mesh or a form that contains the stone material of your choice. You can shape the wall to suit the land or garden because of its evergreen and timeless quality it can look great even though the garden theme changes as the years roll on. Don’t forget you can use the wall to create terraced areas on a sloping block and increase the use of your land. Once a stone wall is built it pretty much looks after itself. They stand up to any weather condition of all kinds and they will be around for years to come.
Adelaide Retaining walls has access to some of Adelaide’s best moss rocks from the Tungkillo region. These rocks have a uniform colour and good moss coverage. Our bluestone is from Kapunda and is the best available. This stone is excellent for higher walls with less space between rocks. We can also provide smaller book leaf stonework for a neat tighter fitting wall that looks amazing. Depending on the site situation and soil types the smaller block walls can be built on rubble bases with rubble filled blocks. Some larger walls call for concrete footings and concrete infill of the blocks themselves. We also install the larger boral Keystone walls using geo grid style tieback systems.
