Retaining Walls

People often think of retaining walls as something you either need or you don't. But while it's true that retaining walls have a functional purpose and are often a legal safety requirement, a retaining wall can really enhance the look of a garden or outdoor area.

The retaining wall design and clever use of materials such as rock, boulder, treated pine, sandstone, block and specialist masonry can turn a practical wall into a feature wall. A retaining wall can transform a sloping block, not just aesthetically, but functionally as well. Imagine your sloping backyard with a series of colourful flowerbeds or an outdoor table set on level ground for afternoon tea.

Hunter Landscaping Design + Construct is fully licensed for Structural Landscaping. We design and build all types of practical and feature walls and can also repair existing retaining walls. The most popular retaining wall materials are H4 treated pine, besser block, concrete panel, segmental block and masonry, rock, boulder and sandstone. All our retaining walls have a ten-year labour and materials warranty.

Development Application for the Upper Hunter Valley.

If you are building a retaining wall over 600mm high, a Development Application must be lodged with Council or an accredited certifier. If you build an unapproved retaining wall, it becomes a liability, particularly when you later want to sell the property and the purchaser's solicitor makes the usual compliance checks. In addition, incorrectly built walls may be unsafe and can put your family, visitors and even your house structure at risk.

Hunter Landscaping Design + Construct will take the stress out of the DA process and manage all the necessary paperwork and inspections for you.
