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!

On behalf of my father, sister and myself, I would like to thank you for the exceptional job that you carried-out with the replacement of the back fence at my father’s place in Doncaster East. You were punctual, toiled all day until you finished in the dark, applied quality workmanship and as a customer, I could not be more please than we are now. If anyone out there was to look for a company/person to have their fence replaced I would strongly recommend you as that person to undertake works. Thank you once again VIP Fencing.

From the moment Chris came to quote for our 2 fences (capped picket fence and capped paling fence) we were impressed. Very comparable quote and best timeline out of the 3 quotes. Chris was punctual, hard working, flexible, friendly and always customer focused. Both fences show superb quality workmanship. Even when a post on the paling fence/gate warped from the heat, Chris returned and fixed it a metal post hidden in the timber post! Amazing solution, far exceeding our expectations. I would highly recommend Chris.

"Just had Bryan install a new Modular fence. The fence looks great and the quality of workmanship spot on. Karen was an absolute pleasure to deal with. We had to juggle the schedule and not only was she very patient, but also managed to get it in when we needed it. Communication throughout was terrific." - Facebook Testimonial

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.
