Retaining Walls in Brisbane

At Landscape by AK we can design and build functional and decorative retaining walls. We have many years of experience building all types of retaining walls, from dry stack to timber sleeper retaining walls. We are a B.S.A. License holder which allows us to build all types and sizes of retaining walls. All retaining walls over 1.0 metre high require engineering and certification. Tony will meet with you to discuss and advise you on the best choice for your landscape retaining wall because when making a retaining wall there are a number of key considerations that need to be factored into the construction especially within Brisbane, including stability, drainage and foundation.

We can ensure that you get a well designed and built retaining wall, one that will withstand the test of time, one that will provide both pleasing aesthetics and high functionality. Retaining walls can be built from a number of different materials though they are usually made from either wood or concrete. Wood offers the best material for aesthetic design and for functionality as it can be cut and shaped in many ways and can be stained or painted to match the surrounds.

Retaining wall types include:

  • Timber sleeper – Treated Pine or Hardwood
  • Koppers log - Treated
  • Concrete sleeper
  • Drystack masonry systems
  • Drystack Sandstone rock (All grades)
  • Brick & masonry
  • Pitched stone

We offer additional landscaping services including landscape design, landscape construction Brisbane including construction of stairs, paving pathways or paved patio and entertainment areas, driveways, supply and installation of turf, garden soil and plants for your garden.
