Timber Retaining Walls


Timber retaining walls offer a natural appearance that suits traditional and modern garden spaces alike. The simplistic designs offer a sturdy barrier that can help reshape sloped yards.

Timber retaining walls are manufactured from high-quality hardwood materials and can be designed as a barrier of up to 1800mm in height, although most systems tend to be significantly smaller. While they are commonly used for straight lines, it is possible to create curved designs too.

The timber retaining walls can be completed to various finishes and colours, but most homeowners choose them at least partly for the natural aesthetic. The retaining wall may be comprised of various components, including straight components and 90-degree angle components.

Their strength makes them ideal for withstanding the lateral pressures created by the soil while they can be customised easily through the addition and incorporation of lighting units and similar advanced features. For a quick way to transform your garden, this solution is ideal.

  • Easily installed, easily maintained, and can be treated with ease even if damage does occur down the line.
  • A very affordable option, particularly when working with larger spaces in terms of height or width requirements.

Rock Retaining Walls


Rock retaining walls are one of the strongest options on the market, offering the capabilities to withstand tonnes of soil. With A Class Fencing, the aesthetic elements are equally special.

Whether it’s a small retaining wall or one that runs the length of your backyard doesn’t matter. Battling against sloping yards and other issues is very easy.

Two of the best options are gabion walls, which are a mesh filled with stones, and dry stack walls in which the rocks are simply layered atop each other. Alternatively, rocks can be mortared together to provide a similar function to a traditional brick wall.

Rock retaining walls can be designed to be straight or curved while the height can also fluctuate at different points if required. Their natural looks suit any garden while the colours will be juxtaposed against the plants and wildlife to create a very striking appearance that can be enjoyed for years.

Concrete walls are a little challenging to install, but A Class Fencing can take care of this issue. Once installed, you will be set for years of reliable function as well as pleasant appearances that will add value to your home life as well as the property.
