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!

Sid has provided us with exceptional customer service and quality of work! Our boundary fence with steel posts looks fantastic, and we could not be any happier with the finished product. We have Sid booked in over the next few weeks to come and complete our second boundary fence too. We highly recommend Sid and will be passing on his details to our friends and family for their fencing/gate needs. Big thanks again Sid, and we’ll see you for our second fence soon!

Mark at VIP Home Services recently built and installed a fence/gate at our property in Mt Waverley which was a great success. Mark's quote and responses to my request were met quickly and he took care to make sure we could have our fence built at his nearest opportunity. He built the fence within a half day and took great care with his products, his building technique and the end result was perfect. He recommended a 'hidden' gate to meet our needs and it fits within the property well. An architect friend even noted now well the fence lined with the house's brickwork. Thank you Mark, we will definitely recommend you for any future work of this type and have recommended you to friends looking for similar fencing!

To Whom it may concern, We are absolutely thrilled to have had the pleasure of working with Angelo (Ange). We were so lucky Ange was able to fit our job in due to a cancellation. Ange went above and beyond to ensure that both ourselves and our neighbours were happy throughout the whole process. He worked back during the week and was there on the weekend. The fence was completed on-time even though there was some lost time initially. Ange you are a credit to yourself and the VIP brand. I will certainly be recommending Ange and VIP to all my friends and family. All the best mate and Merry Christmas
