Retaining Walls Sydney

Professional retaining walls in the Hills District, Blacktown and Sydney suburbs

Heggie Landscaping & Turf Supplies are highly experienced in building retaining walls in the Hills District and surrounding suburbs of Sydney. Retaining walls are primarily used to tame a slope, however it is an effective method to maintain soil levels and combat erosion.

Retaining walls can also be used to create levels within the garden, giving a decorative look. On the other hand, one large wall may assist in creating a large level area, which can be used for more practical activities.

When you are planning on building a retaining wall in the Hills District or surrounding Sydney suburbs, the location and design of the retaining wall are both important. These are in relation to the side and rear boundaries of the block and need to be carefully considered to avoid affecting the amenity and safety of neighbouring properties.

In some cases, building up the ground close to a boundary will affect the privacy of neighbours. In other cases, excavating ground close to a boundary may undermine the common fence and even the neighbour’s property, unless an appropriately designed retaining wall is provided.

Project considerations include:

  • Structural requirements.
