Why build a Retaining Wall

Central Coast Retaining walls are a great way to create usable space in your yard. They can also be used as an attractive landscape feature, or for safety purposes.

In addition, they will help with drainage and prevent erosion of the soil on your property. Retaining walls have been around since ancient times and were originally built by stacking stones one on top of another until they reached the desired height.

The modern day timber retaining wall is made from wood that is held together using steel brackets  to form small sections called panels. These panels can then be stacked up like a jigsaw puzzle until you reach your desired height and width. Timber post can also be used.

1.  Central Coast Retaining Walls – Contain Loose  Soil

Retaining walls are a great way to transform sloping land into an appealing landscape. Installed in the right manner, they can offer more than just stability against soil erosion but increase the usability of your land.

 Previously sloping blocks can have level areas which can be used by your family.

2.  Improve look of your Central Coast Property 

Retaining walls increase the backyard aesthetic appeal. You may go for a natural timber look with steel posts or timber posts. With timber retaining walls you also are able to paint your retaining wall to suit the look of your backyard.

Steel posts help to minimise the amount of your backyard that are taken up by your retaining wall, as they sit flat.

3.  Reduce risk of flooding – Central Coast Retaining Walls

The drainage feature prevents too much rain from accumulating on top of ground cover that would otherwise lead to pooling or flood damage when there isn’t enough absorbent material.
