ACT Landscape Construction builds retaining walls in Canberra and Queanbeyan from the following quality materials.
Treated pine is a cost-effective, hard-wearing timber that’s a popular material for retaining walls in Canberra. As its name suggests, treated pine has a special coating applied to it – to protect against termites, wood rot, and fungus.
Hardwood timber is strong and structurally stable. An applied protective coating (H4 treatment) prolongs the durability of hardwood timbers. Popular hardwood timbers include Redgum, Spotted Gum, Blackbutt, Ironbark, and Jarrah.
Concrete sleepers are strong, durable, and easy to maintain – making them ideal for retaining walls in Canberra. Unlike timber sleepers, concrete timbers aren’t affected by termites and wood rot. ACT Landscape Construction uses concrete sleepers supplied by Adbri Masonry.
ACT Landscape Construction has access to the full range of Adbri Masonry concrete retaining wall blocks in Canberra. Clients can choose from traditional Besser blocks or segmental blocks (which lock into place). We also supply and install dry stack retaining wall systems from Bink Cement Products.
Block and Render
Many clients prefer the smooth and flat texture of a rendered retaining wall in Canberra. Our skilled team can build and render retaining walls made from Adbri Masonry concrete blocks. We also supply and install “pre-rendered” products, such as Adbri Masonry Versasmooth.
ACT Landscape Construction builds authentic stone (rock or boulder) retaining walls in Canberra. We’re experts in building granite, sandstone, porphyry, and bluestone retaining walls. For clients on a budget, we also build gabion retaining walls.
Traditional bricks (made from clay or shale) and newer concrete bricks are suitable for retaining walls. Brick retaining walls are renowned for their strength (if built correctly) and durability (they handle harsh weather well). What’s more, bricks come in a wide range of colours.
