Retaining walls can be one of the most important parts of your landscaping project.

Why a Sandstone Retaining Wall?

Retaining walls are used for garden wall construction where the soil needs to be kept at different levels on both sides of the wall. The retaining wall’s purposes is to restrain the soil on a slope, where the soil would otherwise erode and quickly wear away. Retaining walls are ideal for steep vertical or near vertical sloping land. Sandstone retaining walls are timeless, unique and beautiful whilst being functional and practical. They absorb water, and allow drainage to occur when it is needed.
