A typical Bowen Mountain Project, it was steep. Under the over grown shrubs & ground cover was a poorly built, rotten and collapsing timber retaining wall.
We removed the old sleeper wall and reshaped the embankment to improve garden maintenance, drainage and enable additional parking on the property.
A Structural Engineer was engaged to design a strong, low maintenance and cost effective retaining wall. We constructed the wall using the large C & M blocks. Specialised no-fines concrete was used in the walls backfill so maximum heights could be reached.
Due to the steep driveway the new walls have low voltage lights highlighting a safe route to the front door. Other lights show off feature plantings and the upper car bay. The client has their input with plants chosen by them.
This was a major project completed in a number of sections. We believe it has resulted in a safer home, capital improvement into the property and a better place to live.
