Retaining walls are relatively rigid walls used for supporting soil laterally so that it can be retained at different levels on the two sides. Retaining walls are structures designed to restrain soil to a slope that it would not naturally keep to.

In simpler terms, retaining wall are commonly installed on sloping blocks to retain the soil between two different levels.

With the decreasing availability of flat blocks available in South Australia and New South Wales many homes in Adelaide and Sydney are constructed on terrains that are sloping.

Retaining Walls have come a long way over the years and not only do retaining walls add structural stability to a landscape, but they can also add value to your property with their aesthetic appeal and functionality.
