Quality Retaining Blocks For Quality Retaining Walls

Is your commercial or residential property on a slope? If it is, it might have soil requiring retention. Landslides and soil erosion are a problem for sloping land, which can cause extensive and expensive damage. The only way to hold this soil back is by installing a quality retaining wall. Fortunately for the people of Brisbane, Engineered Retaining Blocks manufactures expertly engineered blocks for all retaining wall needs.

Bluestone Blocks

At Engineered Retaining Blocks, we use bluestone as the primary material for our retaining blocks. They’re the classy, sophisticated alternative to concrete sleepers, sandstone blocks and stone. We’ve opted for this material as it’s more affordable, while still being able to enhance the look and feel of your landscaping design dramatically. As it’s grey colour goes well with any home design and style, your retaining walls won’t stand out against your home.

 

Our blocks come in three different sizes, and a variety of colours and they’re easy to dry stack and use. There’s also no need to worry about their draining capabilities because they’re manufactured without using mortar, making them self-draining. It’s perfect for modern homes in Brisbane and the Gold Coast looking for an elegant solution to soil retention problems.

Concrete sleeper retaining walls

Perhaps you have a sloping area on your property and you’re considering creating a retaining wall that will hold the soil together and keep it from further moving down. If you’ve begun your research on the process and materials involved in creating a retaining wall, then you’ve probably heard about concrete sleepers. They are typically long and thin and are engineered to keep the soil behind the wall.

 

However, if you’re dealing with a large area where the retaining wall needs to be sturdy and compact, using retaining blocks may prove to be more beneficial for you. Here are some of the ways that concrete blocks can help you create a better-looking and sturdier wall than concrete sleepers:

Blocks are thicker and more durable

As mentioned earlier, concrete sleepers are much thinner. And despite concrete being a versatile and sturdy material, concrete sleepers still tend to be prone to cracks, which could mean more replacement and cost over time. Concrete blocks, on the other hand, are much thicker and compact which makes it more durable than concrete sleepers. It also lasts longer without much need for maintenance.

They look elegant

At Engineered Retaining Blocks, we produce high-quality blocks that are grey in colour making it easier to create a modern, sophisticated vibe in your space. Since they are blocks, they also look much more elegant when stacked up compared to concrete sleepers.

More economical

If you’re planning to create a retaining wall over rock, you’ll have to spend money on drilling the rock on which the concrete sleepers will be placed. Our concrete blocks can be placed on any flat surface and remain stable for the long term.

Summary

Building a retaining wall is necessary to ensure that your property is safe and looks visually appealing. However, despite its benefits, it is a project that requires careful planning. If you’re still trying to decide whether to get concrete sleepers or concrete blocks for your retaining wall, take time to assess the needs of your property and see which material can serve you better. Choose one that will make your space look better, become safer and more functional. Find out more about concrete blocks at Engineered Retaining Blocks by booking a consultation with us.
