Timber retaining walls are great value for money, costing less than other options in the beginning and lasting approximately 15-20 years. Our walls come standard with bidum, 100mm agpipe and 20mm drainage gravel. We concrete our posts in ground and use galvanised batten screws throughout.
Grey block walls now come in a variety of colours, textures and sizes. They are at the top end of retaining wall prices and are often used in front fences with pillars and fence panels. Blocks are corefilled with concrete and steel and can be left grey, painted, rendered or have cladding attached for a stacked stone look. There are other options too for block walls such as hebel and key locking blocks not requiring corefill to name a few. While these blocks are quicker to install they can be up to 5 times the price per block to buy initially so often these are used by DIY installers rather than landscapers.
