Retaining Walls Noosa & Surrounds
The Ground Force Noosa team have many years experience in constructing retaining walls. Retaining walls are integral structures to most landscapes. They are relatively rigid walls used for supporting soil laterally so that it can be retained at different levels on the two sides. This helps prevent soil erosion and creates level, usable areas in a landscape.
Retaining Wall Builders
Retaining walls are required to withstand significant loads and need to be designed and constructed correctly and with the correct materials to avoid failure. We have extensive knowledge in constructing retaining walls and can advise you on the most effective way to retain your garden or land. Water is the most common reason that retaining walls fail so it’s essential to make sure your wall has good drainage. When quoting for your new wall we will identify potential surface water sources and make sure drainage adjacent to the wall site has been accounted for. It is important to identify the common drainage patterns of your land and construct a drainage system behind the wall to minimise the amount of pressure the ground water could create. For example by backfilling with rock, using Aggi pipes, and using “weep” holes to allow water to pass through the wall we can help aleivate this pressure.
Retaining walls are most commonly constructed from treated pine or hardwood timber, stone or concrete blocks depending on the look you would like and the complexity of the job. We design and construct the walls to last, they have a big job to do and you do not want to be replacing them in the near future.
It is quite common for new home sites to require some sort of retaining prior to the construction of the new home. In this instance we offer a site inspection and can collaborate with builders and engineers.
All our retaining walls are built to QBCC standards.
We work with both residential and commercial clients, body corporate’s and real estate. Please give us a call today to arrange a site visit. Once we have met you with you on site we then supply you with a personalised quotation for your retaining wall and landscaping requirements.
