    Timber is a great cost-effective material and can often be tied into a fence or staircase. A retaining timber wall is also extremely visually pleasing and enhances the space immensely.


    Timber walls are great in many circumstances. Many Aucklanders currently have a steep lawn. This can be a nightmare to mow, and is an almost unusable space.

    Create amazing outdoor spaces with the use of retaining walls. Timber is great as it's versatile and strong.


    Concrete retaining blocks are useful when building higher retaining walls. Retaining walls also add another element to your yard, and can be great when you need to break up timber from decks to fences.


    Concrete walls come in a wide range of designs, and can be used to great effect.

    Frequently Asked Retaining Wall Questions

    Do I need permission from the Auckland council to build a retaining wall?

    Most of the time, you will need council approval before building a retaining wall on your Auckland property. Rules about building retaining walls can be different depending on things like the height of the wall, the materials used, and where your property is located.

    In general, if your retaining wall is taller than 1.5 meters, you will need permission from the council before you can build it. Also, if your retaining wall is close to a boundary or a public area, you may need to get permission before you start building.

    When deciding whether or not to approve your retaining wall, the council will look at a number of things, such as how the wall will affect the properties around it, how well it is built, and whether or not it follows all building codes and rules. At The Auckland Landscaping Company, we can help you get through the council approval process and make sure that your retaining wall is built and designed in a way that meets all the rules. Contact us today to find out more about our services and how we can help you with your retaining wall project. Learn more here.

    Why are retaining walls a good idea?

    Both homes and businesses can benefit in many ways from having retaining walls. They can keep the soil from washing away, keep your property from flooding, and give you more space to use outside. Retaining walls can also make your property look better by giving it more texture, color, and shape. At The Auckland Landscaping Company, we design and build many different kinds of retaining walls, such as garden retaining walls, block retaining walls, timber retaining walls, stone and rock retaining walls, and more.

    How much do retaining walls cost in Auckland?

    The cost of retaining walls in Auckland depends on many things, such as their size, the materials they are made of, and how hard the project is. On average, it costs between $150 and $250 per square meter to build a retaining wall, depending on the materials used and the complexity of the project. But it's important to keep in mind that this price is just an estimate, and the real price will depend a lot on your needs and preferences. At The Auckland Landscaping Company, our prices are competitive, and we can give you a detailed estimate that shows how much your retaining wall project will cost.

    Can I build my own retaining wall?

    You can build your own retaining wall, but you should be aware that there are some rules and restrictions that you need to follow. Most of the time, you need council approval to build your own retaining wall if it is taller than 1.5 meters.

    If you've done do-it-yourself projects before and know how to use tools and materials, you might be able to build your own retaining wall. But it's important to know that building a retaining wall can be a difficult and complicated process, and there are some technical things that need to be thought about. The success of your retaining wall project can depend on things like the type of soil, how well it drains, and how well it is built. Also, if your retaining wall isn't built to a high standard, it could be dangerous and cause damage to your property.

    We have a lot of experience at The Auckland Landscaping Company designing and building high-quality retaining walls for both homes and businesses. Our team of experts can help you with every part of building a retaining wall, from designing and planning to building and managing the project.

    What kinds of materials are used to make retaining walls?

    At The Auckland Landscaping Company, we use a variety of materials to make retaining walls that are both beautiful and useful. Wood, stone, gabions, keystone blocks, and retaining blocks are some of the most common things that are used. Each material has its own pros and cons, so it's important to work with a professional team that can help you figure out which one is best for your needs.

    Can slope stabilization be done with retaining walls?

    Yes, you can use retaining walls to make a slope more stable. They can help stop soil erosion and make sloped areas more stable. The Auckland Landscaping Company has a team of experts who design and build retaining walls to stop erosion and keep slopes stable.

    How long does it take to build a wall to hold back soil?

    How long it takes to build a retaining wall depends on things like its size, the materials used, and how complicated the project is. A retaining wall project can take anywhere from one to three weeks on average to finish. But it's important to remember that this schedule can change based on what the project needs.

    Are retaining walls only useful for keeping ground in place, or can they also be used to add flair the appearance of my garden?

    Retaining walls can be useful and pretty at the same time. Even though their main purpose is to keep soil from shifting and eroding, they can also make your property look better. Our team at The Auckland Landscaping Company specializes in designing and building retaining walls that are both beautiful and useful.

    Can wood retaining walls hold up against bad weather?

    People often choose timber retaining walls because they look warm and inviting. If they are built and designed correctly, they can stand up to harsh weather. At The Auckland Landscaping Company, our team specializes in designing and building timber retaining walls that are both beautiful and strong, so they can stand up to even the toughest weather.

    How do gabion walls hold back soil?

    Gabion walls are made by putting rocks or other materials into metal wire cages. The cages are then stacked on top of each other to make a strong and environmentally friendly wall. Gabion retaining walls are very flexible and can be used for many different things, like stabilizing slopes, stopping erosion, and stopping floods.

    Do retaining walls require ongoing maintenance?

    Retaining walls do need to be taken care of so that they stay structurally sound and look nice. How much maintenance is needed depends on things like the type of materials used and where the wall is. Our team at The Auckland Landscaping Company takes care of retaining walls on an ongoing basis to make sure they stay in great shape.
