Concrete & Timber for Sleeper Retaining Walls

When introducing sleeper retaining walls to a property, homeowners and landscapers often opt for timber as their material of choice. It has strong visual aesthetics and will work well for a time (approximately 15 years). Unfortunately, you will eventually notice your wall begin to discolour into a broken reminder of what once stood there. A couple of years more, chances are the harsh elements of Canberra’s ever-changing climate will leave that timber warping, buckling, and losing its structural integrity due to rot.

The team at Farr Out Landscaping therefore also offer strong options of concrete sleeper retaining walls for Canberra homes. Rather than having to replace these formations every 5, 10 or 15 years, concrete will last a lifetime, as it cannot be infested with pests like white ants, nor can it rot. This adds security and value to your property, as well as the peace of mind in knowing the problem is resolved for good!

What to Consider Before Erecting Concrete Sleeper Retaining Walls

There are a few steps in between recognizing the need for, and the installation of, a sleeper retaining wall into your garden. Moving ahead with a build without taking the proper precautions or understanding the desired outcome for your feature can result in unfortunate, and costly, repercussions.

Before progressing with construction, consider:

  • How compact is the soil where construction will take place?
  • How suitable for cladding is the substrate/wall?
  • Do you have permits or drawings from a structural engineer where required?
  • Are concrete footings required?
  • Where is the nearest drainage system?
  • Which type of finish will you apply?

If you are unsure on how to answer these questions, do not fret; our team of friendly experts are more than happy to help.
