Retaining Walls Logan
What Are Retaining Walls
Retaining walls are a simple yet stylish way to infuse a bit of function and aesthetics into your garden or backyard.
Retaining walls are used in gardens and backyards for a number of purposes. These simple constructions form a rigid and solid barrier between two different sides or sections.
The purpose of a retaining wall is to provide an effective separation between the soil, plants, grass, cobblestones or other materials, especially if the different sides exist at alternate heights.
Understanding the benefits of retaining walls
Retaining walls are not just practical in keeping the different materials of your backyard in place and separated. An expertly designed garden by a professional team of landscapers–like us at Vorstman Constructions–can use retaining walls with deft skill to create a fully functional and visually pleasing backyard.
A clean, well-maintained garden with retaining walls from our local Logan city team will transform your outdoor space. With high quality materials and durable construction, a retaining wall can also add significant value to your property.
If your backyard has multiple different levels of ascending or descending heights, or if you’re looking to put in place a tiered design in your garden, retaining walls can be absolutely instrumental in helping to create the desired effect over the long term.

We don’t believe in uniform garden walls. Our onsite consultations allow us to walk you through numerous different options in terms of style and material to find the perfect solution for you! With plenty of variety, there’s bound to be a perfect design for any project.

Retaining wall materials
The Vorstman Constructions team works with a number of materials when it comes to retaining walls.
Timber wood is an excellent choice for projects on a tight budget. Particularly useful in preventing soil from collapsing, another huge benefit of timber is that it requires no damage to your property when being constructed and installed. Often used in gardens where an embankment or excavation needs filling, we’re particularly fond of using treated pine sleeper! On a stylistic level, timber retains an earthy and natural aesthetic to seamlessly match wooden fences and natural environments.
Concrete is an enormously useful construction material for use in retaining walls of all types. Despite being more expensive than a timber wall, concrete is still relatively cost-effective and affordable. This practical material is super strong whilst also being resistant to insects, rotting and damage from environmental factors and outdoor exposure. Ongoing maintenance is limited and easy too! Of course, to opt for your concrete you’ll want to be partial to a sleek, seamless, minimalist design style. If you are, a concrete retaining wall will absolutely be right for you.
Few things look more at home in a garden than a retaining wall made out of rock. Rocks blend seamlessly into the surrounding environment whilst retaining a level of elegance and beauty unique to natural stone. Rock walls are particularly popular for landscapes in agricultural, farm or bush settings but can look stunning even in urban residential gardens. There are many different types of rocks and stones to choose from, so make sure to get in touch with the Vorstman team to find the perfect type just for you.
A link block retaining wall is made from concrete so you benefit from all the same features of a pure concrete wall: durability, hard wearing and rot resistance. The advantage of link block walls however is that they are particularly easy to install and are extra suitable for reclaiming sloped land, minimising the effects of erosion or creating specialised planter boxes and ringed vegetable patches. Being concrete, little to no ongoing maintenance is required to keep a link block wall clean and looking as new as the day it was installed.
