Important Design Elements
There are not too many allotments in the Adelaide Hills that are perfectly level. This means that you will more than likely require some soil retention on your property.
If the slope is minimal and retaining walls are kept under 1 metre in height, then engineering drawings are not required. This is a cost saver, and something to bear in mind when purchasing a sloping allotment.
Retaining walls must be strong enough to withstand the weight of the soil, and include some form of drainage in many cases to limit stress over time. By choosing Fletchers, you are engaging an industry specialist who will ensure the post holes are deep enough, the steel posts are strong enough, and the sleepers suit the desired look of your home or garden.
With over 15 years of experience, free quotes, and knowing that you are dealing directly with Stuart, the owner, you can rest assured your job is in safe hands.
Are you after a wall that will not only look good, but be the strongest possible build to ensure that no soil movement occours? Then a concrete build may be the option for you. The best upside to building with this type of material is it is strong, weather proof and can last a life time. One of the many advantages that this type of material has is endless, but one that customers seem to find most appealing is that its cheap. Unlike timber, concrete is very cheap in larger quantities, and it generally has a much stronger finish that can withstand the elements, and will keep the soil where it is mean to be.
When Do I need a Retaining Wall?
When a block of land is sloping and you need to create a flat platform for building, the resulting "cut out" of land will require a retaining wall to hold back the soil on the high side. This is a method that is very common in the hills and higher up suburbs. This is one of the safest and most benifical ways to create the platform at your home, office of structure. This will allow the area to be safe and structured by the wall so there will be now sliding of the dirt and soil behind it.
Boral Retaining Walls
This type of wall is with out a doubt one of the most popular, and has become the fore front of most homes in the modern age. Not only does it look fantastic, but they will suit any style of home no matter how modern or how old. This type of wall is segmental which means it is mad up of individual pieces instead of one large piece, like concrete and some timber builds. This gives the whole design a much more aesthetic beauty feel to it, and will continue to look great for many years to come.
Retaining walls do not need to be ugly, with the many types of natural blocks, concrete sleepers and patterned concrete sleepers available through Fletchers. Nor do they need to be expensive. Prices do rise as the height of the required retaining wall increases, and with some of the more designer looking sleepers, but with Stuart offering free quotes and the most competitive prices in the Adelaide Hills, he is well worth talking to. Remember, if retaining walls aren't done correctly, or to regulations, they will end up costing you more. Fletchers Landscaping make sure no shortcuts are taken on concrete and post hole depth, or necessary drainage.
If you're looking to build a wall, then the use of timber sleepers may be a big advantage to you. This type of build usually suits more vintage style homes with vibrant gardens.
