Hey Rob. Thanks again for everything last week. Your can do attitude, amazing work ethic and awesome sense of humour when the chips were down was what made that project happen. I hope we have the chance to work together again soon.
Retaining Wall Design
Often retaining walls and retaining wall design comes as a result of leveling out an area. Careful thought should be given to the design as a retaining wall can look very overbearing in a garden if not constructed suitably.
Scale is one of the main factors. A 800mm high retaining wall in a small to medium sized garden will usually look obtrusive and make a space feel enclosed. To solve this problem, the height could be divided into two 400mm walls with the plateau in between planted out as a garden bed.
Sometimes a suitable solution may be to create a feature wall using stone or feature design tiles. Whether the retaining wall is constructed using timber or masonry, the position and height should be carefully considered during the garden design process.
With a registered building practitioner license, the Waddell Landscapes team can legally arrange any permits or structural detail required for a safe and effective retaining wall construction. Our experienced team can design and build retaining walls perfectly into your garden.
