In Victoria; we can build your retaining wall for you of any length, up to a maximum of one meter high.
Over 1 meter high requires engineer's drawings and specifications as well as being specifically licenced to perform the works.
Retainer walls unless properly built using the correct materials and construction methods won’t last long and, in some cases, may even be dangerous!
Here is what we will in most cases recommend to you re the building of your retainer wall.
Galvanised H and or C channel type for both superior strength and stability, these are also long lasting and highly corrosion resistant. They can also be reused if timber sleepers are chosen when they become past there use by date.
Concrete only, and lots of it!
Base of Soil Behind:
50 to 100mm Agy Pipe, covered with Geo Textile Mat and then Scoria, this gives you good drainage at the base of the soil behind the wall, low walls may not need this addition, but it is best practice.
Retainer Wall Material:
You can use a variety of timbers from Treated Pine through to Hardwood Sleepers for this purpose, but the ultimate for longevity and stability is concrete sleepers. Concrete sleepers come in a variety of finishes and colours.
Add concrete sleepers to the galvanised steel beams frame and you have a winning long lasting and stable combination!

Clint was very professional. His work is of a high standard. He contacted me when he needed to. Kind and friendly.

We had a clear idea about the sort of fence that we wanted, but after getting three other quotes (which were mostly vague) we weren't confident that we were going to find the right person to do it for us. Then we found VIP Fencing and we were so pleased to find somebody who was able to make our fence and communicate well with us. Everything was clear from the beginning - Bryan understood what we wanted, made a suggestion of something that would improve the design (and he was right) and sent through a detailed and clear quote. Karen was also great to deal with and communicated with us with any questions we had. During the job, they worked hard and remained professional and friendly throughout - it was a big job and the days were very hot! Bryan paid attention to detail and took pride in his work. We have already received compliments for our fence and we're happy it looks exactly as we hoped it would. Home improvements can be stressful and costly and it's always a pleasure and relief when you hire somebody and they not only fulfill your expectations but surpass them. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Bryan and Karen who are not only hard workers, but are also just lovely to deal with!

VIP Fencing (Matt Couper) was quick to respond to my request for a quote. They visited within a day and the quote was emailed right away. Changes requested by the neighbours were happily accommodated, and the prices were competitive. Most pleasingly, Matt set a day to do the work, and was there on time and on the day stated. I cannot actually recall the last time a tradie did that. He worked hard all day, and finished after dark. Very well done and left the site tidy. And on top of that he was friendly and accommodating. Can't ask for more. If you want a fence done for a good price, with a good result, on time as promised, then Matt is the bloke to speak to. Thanks Matt.

Thanks Harley for the amazing job you did on building our capped exposed post fence, the letter box fits perfectly and the gate looks incredible! See you soon to do my other fence and so glad I chose you over the others.

Dear Ange, I just wanted to say thanks and what a pleasure it was to have you build my back fence. At the time of calling you I was in a desperate situation of needing the fence built urgently, you were not only able to meet my needs with the timeframe, but your advise on what would be best with regard to how the fence should be constructed, and the assurance re the quality of work and materials overall represents 100% satisfaction on my part. Once again thanks for everything, the fence looks great, and I will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who needs a fence. Cheers.
