There are some secret benefits of a sandstone retaining wall that not everyone will know about. Of course they look great, and a sandstone retaining wall is a real asset in terms of landscaping. A sandstone retaining wall also adds a formal touch to landscaping. It looks especially classy and elegant. But the real secret behind a sandstone retaining wall is the cost! That’s right, a sandstone retaining wall is not significantly more expensive than a timber retaining wall. Furthermore, when you consider what you get for the money, there are way more benefits of a sandstone retaining wall!
What are the cost benefits of a sandstone retaining wall?
Sure the sandstone costs a little more, especially to get A grade sawn sandstone blocks. You can choose to save a little upfront cost and go with B grade sawn blocks. The difference between A grade sandstone and B grade blocks is primarily the number of cut surfaces, and the shape of the sandstone blocks. For a formal sandstone retaining wall, we recommend the use of A grade sandstone, but that depends on the desired outcome. The next thing is to consider the supply of the sandstone blocks.
