Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)
There is a lot to know about retaining walls and we are the experts. Don't worry, you can discover everything you need to learn about whether you need rock or sandstone retaining walls with a little research or by getting expert advice from Amber.
What are the different types of retaining walls?Generally speaking, retaining walls come in timber or concrete, though there are also limestone retaining walls and some made from rock. Within this, there are various design choices like near vertical walls, terraced walls, set back walls and curved walls, each of which has its own advantages and disadvantages. You will need to explore your options and consider the practical and aesthetic considerations. https://www.ambertiles.com.au/news/post/retaining-wall-design. This post may give you some inspiration.
What are some small retaining walls ideas?Retaining walls are an excellent opportunity to flex your creative muscles. Depending on your goals, you could try a patchwork stone design or install some concrete sleepers. You could even go for rock retaining walls concealed by nature for a kind of 'secret garden' effect. There are many possibilities, and you can check out https://www.ambertiles.com.au/news/post/20-best-retaining-wall-designs-and-ideas for some suggestions.
What sizes do retaining walls come in?Generally speaking, retaining walls in NSW are never more than about 100cm tall. In terms of actual sizes, the majority of our blocks have a width of 500mm and varying heights and depths. You will need to have a think about the size you want for your retaining wall and order the appropriate number of blocks to make it a reality, so take measurements into account at all times.
Who builds retaining walls?If you have a professional landscaper working on your garden they may erect the walls themselves. They may bring in another contractor to do that work instead in some cases. But it is entirely possible to build a retaining wall as a DIY job with a little know-how, and our products are ideal for doing the work yourself. Whichever option is best for you.
How do you waterproof retaining walls?Retaining walls that do not form part of your property are less critical but still benefit from a retaining wall waterproofing membrane so that dampness from the ground does not end up ruining the aesthetic of the design. Waterproof membranes are affordable and can be bought separately, and they are simple to install when constructing your retaining wall. Be aware that weep holes are necessary to alleviate hydrostatic pressure as required - make sure you know what you are doing before building your wall.
