Sandstone retaining walls Brisbane they’re perfect for soil retention
Sandstone retaining walls are the best way to manage soil retention on your property. In the torrential rain we regularly experience in South East Queensland, you don’t want your soil washed away. Not only do they look good, but sandstone retaining walls represent the best value over the longer term. Natural sandstone retaining walls are cheaper than block or brick walls and will become a feature of your landscaping. Unlike timber retaining walls or even concrete, sandstone retaining walls are permanent. They will never need maintenance or replacement.
Long term benefits of sandstone retaining walls
You can choose natural Sandstone boulders or sawn sandstone blocks. At QC Landscaping, we integrate those materials to construct a retaining wall that is built to last. We use approved construction methods in accordance with all council regulations. This includes ground preparation and foundations. Perfect for sloping ground, or for stabilising soil erosion, for levelling, or just for garden beds, we recommend and use the appropriate sized sandstone blocks and boulders. We have 20 years experience around South East Queensland. So there is no landscaping problem around Brisbane and Ipswich that we can’t solve!
No retaining wall is too big or too small
Using our excavation machinery we can construct any sized sandstone retaining walls in no time. In addition we can create level areas, construction sites, or elegant landscapes for your property. Sloping blocks can be made more level by cutting and filling the soil. Furthermore, we can distribute soil around your property, or we can remove soil or supply soil depending on your requirements.
We find solutions, not problems
At QC Landscaping, we just love sandstone retaining walls Brisbane people! And we pride ourselves with finding the best way to integrate the sandstone with the natural lay of the land. We believe that for every problem, there is a sandstone retaining wall that can be designed as a solution. We offer a wide range of different materials, different sized blocks, and different finishes and appearance to suit the appearance you require.
Different types of sandstone materials – random boulders
For large retaining walls, there is a requirement for solid foundations and larger sandstone blocks or boulders. So to deal with these situations we design for and recommend the use of random sandstone boulders. These require heavy machinery for handling the heavy loads. For smaller sandstone retaining walls we might recommend smaller random stones, which are easier to move.
Sawn sandstone retaining walls
If you prefer a more tailored appearance, we recommend a choice between A grade and B grade sawn sandstone. Depending on the nature of the sandstone wall, we can use rough sawn stone to build neat and sturdy sandstone retaining walls that will stand the test of time. For a more manicured appearance we recommend A grade sawn sandstone, which is sawn on all 6 sides.
Sandstone steps and sandstone pavers
