Retaining Walls in Wollongong and the Illawarra

Fresh Home & Garden Services can build you the retaining wall you need out of Treated Pine sleepers subject to Council rules in Wollongong and the Illawarra.

A well constructed timber retaining wall will give you many years of service and provide you the functionality you require in your yard.

A retaining wall can help give you back more usable area in your backyard. Retaining walls can help give you an easier job with your garden and lawn maintenance by levelling out slopes.

Our attention to detail means you will be satisfied with the end result.

Timber Retaining Walls

Timber retaining walls are the cost effective and affordable solution for retaining areas in your garden.

You may want a flat area for the kids to play or a nice level area to set up a fire pit.

With so much of Wollongong and the Illawarra on sloping ground, especially towards the escarpment, retaining walls are a must to try and provide a flatter – more level – outdoor area in your garden for enjoying our beautiful climate.

Our retaining walls are installed with 100mm Ag line drainage and blue metal aggregate to ensure no water build up behind the wall which can lead to failure in older walls.

We install posts at intervals of approximately 1200 mm to ensure maximum strength.

We use 75 mm thick H4 treated pine to ensure longevity and to minimise warping and twisting.

Please note though, that we only build timber retaining walls to a maximum height of 600 mm because anything higher than that requires an engineering certificate and council permission.

Retaining Walls in Wollongong and the Illawarra can include:

  • Site Assessment
  • Ground preparations and excavation
  • Poles concreted in for maximum strength
  • 200 x 75 mm Sleepers that won’t bend or twist
  • Drainage
  • Finishing
  • Backfilling
