Human Nature Landscapes
A well designed retaining wall can be one of the most effective and valuable components of your landscape design and construction projects. For either residential or commercial property, it can provide you with additional living spaces, create lovely garden beds and help to effectively retain property boundaries.
Flexible and Unique Retaining Wall Solutions
We design and construct a range of retaining wall solutions for our clients across Brisbane
Your outdoor areas can be enhanced with a huge range of retaining wall types and colours depending on your taste and landscaping design needs. There are many options available, these include:
- Cut stone
- Natural stone or rock boulders
- Natural Stone or rock boulder walls
- Replica Stone Walls
- Coping Stones
- Timber such as treated pine or hardwood pine
- Modular panelled walls
- Concrete Retaining Wall Sleepers
Other materials commonly available are steel, aluminium and solid material such as brick and block.
Considerations when choosing a material are location, security and durability. For example, block walls are extremely durable and long lasting, but are more costly in terms of material and labour.
Mixing materials can work well where landscaping requires more soil retention, a block wall will be needed (or concrete) but this can be capped with a timber fence which offers a naturally attractive finish and lower installation costs.

The DURAWALL concrete retaining wall is an engineer designed system consisting of Concrete Sleepers and Galvanised Steel Posts used for retaining walls up to 4.0m high. The design life is 60 Years.
DURAWALL CONCRETE SLEEPERS
Durawall sleepers come in 2 lengths 1480mm and 1980mm. All sleepers are 200mm high and 75mm or 83mm thick depending on design. Section lengths are therefore 1.5m or 2.0m post centres.
The DURAWALL sleepers are manufactured from 40 mpa concrete. The sleepers contain 12mm Australian steel reo and can be ordered with gal reo for coastal areas.
DURAWALL STEEL POSTS
All posts are galvanised to Australian Standard. Durawall uses UC100 14.8 kg/m for walls up to 1.6m high and then UB200 18.2 kg/m for walls to 3.0m high. UC200 46 kg/m for retaining walls to 4.0m high.
We use a premium full depth coloured concrete CCS powdered pigment to ensure the oxide colour is dispersed deep into the concrete, giving you a natural looking colour that is both UV and weather resistant. Enjoy the maintenance free advantage of our product. Call to discuss colour options.
Sleepers can also be painted giving a long term and beautiful effect.
