Retaining walls protect your garden or yard from soil erosion and other natural elements. These walls also add value and style to your property’s exterior.
When choosing materials to construct retaining walls, you need to consider materials that will withstand all weather conditions and soil pressure. Functional uses of retainer walls should be designed for structural purposes. They require reinforcement components professionally designed or built by qualified Akaroa landscapers versus constructing one yourself. However, if the wall is for aesthetic purposes you can build and choose the decorative wall design on your own.
According to your landscape needs, you can choose a wall that suits your requirements from the two main types of retaining walls we have in Akaroa. These types include segmental designs and gravity walls. Segmental design walls are designed with reinforcement to enable them to hold heavier pressure. Gravity walls are designed with no reinforcement because they are used to retain soil on small gardens.
The materials you should consider for your retaining wall depends on wall functions or aesthetic preference. The following factors should also be well thought out when building retainer walls: height, depth, width, ground pressure and size. The cost of building a retaining wall is dependent on the wall design, building materials, labour and wall height.
