Build a Concrete Sleeper Retaining Wall for Your New Fence

Installing a new fence is a fantastic way to enhance your property and your garden. If you’re installing a quality Colorbond Fence or Good Neighbour fence, you want to know it’s protected and secured. That’s where a retaining wall comes in.

By installing a retaining wall beneath your fence, you can close off any gaps in your fencing and keep dirt and soil away from your fence rails. Not only does this make your fence look fantastic, but it also protects it from rust and other damage.

As well as this, cement retaining walls are a secure and cost-effective way to install your fence. If you need advice on this project, Lee and the team at Gorilla Wall would be happy to help you out.

Transform Your Whole Garden with a Retaining Wall

The humble retaining wall has so many simple applications that can really transform your garden. Here are just a few ways you can improve your outdoor area with concrete sleeper retaining walls:

  • Build a retaining wall to create a raised garden bed in your backyard. As well as looking fantastic, a raised garden bed is the perfect place to grow your favourite flowers, plants, fruit, and veggies. This is because the raised design of the garden bed keeps nasty critters and bugs at bay.
  • You can also tame sloping areas in your garden with a retaining wall. Use your new concrete sleeper wall to create a flat piece of land or take advantage of sloped areas to create beautiful patterns in your garden. A retaining wall could even be the perfect way to create a sloping path in your yard.

What Makes Concrete Retaining Wall Sleepers the Best

If you’re looking to replace your old, discoloured timber sleepers, you already know why concrete is the best. Unlike their timber counterparts, concrete sleeper retaining walls aren’t going to discolour, warp or get eaten by white ants.

Said simply, concrete sleepers are the most up to date on the market, and the products we stock at Gorilla Wall stand above the rest.
