Whether out of necessity or style, retainer walls can be used to support or add unique features to your garden landscape. The main purpose of a retainer wall is to keep soil in place. Sometimes it’s to prevent soil from spilling downhill on a steep slope or keep a feature in place such as a raised garden bed. If you have a long, steep sloping hill, it might be wise to install several retaining walls to prevent the hill from slumping over time.
Recently, Retaining Wall Designs in Melbourne have moved to having a more aesthetic appeal and can even be a focal point to your outdoor area by complementing a raised patio or providing a base for plants.
Furthermore, design retaining walls can be multipurpose. They can be great for creating a multi-level garden on a steep piece of land as well as be a nice seating area for relaxing and spending time with friends. Retaining Wall Designs can turn an unusable piece of land into something you can enjoy. Simply build the wall, then level the ground behind it. To make the retaining wall unique, you can add mosaic tiling patterns to a plain wall to turn it into a piece of work.
A retaining wall is usually built with timbers or some sort of stone. This can be pavers, bricks, concrete blocks, or even field stones. Talk with a contractor to figure out what material will work best for your application and desired look. Consider how much stress the wall will be put under, and how to engineer ways to keep water from building up behind it and how deep the footings will need to be buried in the ground.
There may be codes in your area that mandate a wall of a certain height be designed by an engineer and built by a professional for your own safety. You wouldn’t want a wall to come crashing down on your car during a rainstorm. Melbourne is known to get heaps of rain occasionally. Our retaining wall contractors will work with you to design a wall that fills all of your needs.
