The possibilities when using landscaping retaining walls are endless. This is regardless of whether you are building one on a surface that is flat or sloping. Icon Walls work with clients on a range of attractive, innovative designs for retaining walls in both residential and commercial properties.
We thought we would share with you some of the ways in which you can use a retaining wall system for your home or commercial garden.
The landscape retaining wall is commonly used to retain a slope or bank that is susceptible to collapse or crumble, which can cause significant damage to a property. The range of concrete sleepers available at Icon Walls are perfect for this application. They will keep their structure and shape regardless of pests or weather damage. The centre of the retaining wall is steel and this ensures the concrete sleepers stay in their position.
Anyone who has gardened on a slope knows it can be a difficult task. You need to find plants that are suitable for the steep terrain as well as maintaining the structure of the soil. Retaining walls containing concrete and steel systems provide a terrace for the steep section. This ensures a flat, fertile surface for plants, as well as improving water retention and drainage.
Standard, flat space often create a boring, dull garden. However, a raised garden bed can add a whole new life to your garden, with the eyes following different levels for the admiration of raised special plants. Icon Walls’ range of concrete sleepers make it simple to create raised garden beds, and walls of below 600mm can be built without the approval of your local council.
