What is a retaining wall?
A retaining wall is a wall that holds a mass of earth in place . Often used to help prevent soil and plant life from overrunning elevated terrains, retaining walls are ideal for managing a sloping block or creating zones in your outdoor area.
Contain and refine: retaining wall ideas
Complement and enhance the natural beauty of your outdoor space with a retaining wall. ModularWalls retaining walls are similar in appearance to a rendered brick wall, with a far easier and quicker installation process. The lightweight, modular nature of ModularWalls allows for easy installation in a matter of days (saving you considerable time and money!).

Create outdoor zones with retaining wall solutions
Retaining walls are an excellent way to maximise your usable outdoor space, particularly when faced with an uneven or sloping block. You can create an outdoor entertaining area or stylish pool area seating – the choice is yours!
Garden beds and backyard features made easy
Elevate your garden and create a feature garden bed using retaining walls to help your plants ‘pop’. Alternatively, consider a tiered backyard to transform your sloping block into something special.
Express your style, customise your retaining wall design
The options to customise your retaining walls are limitless. You could choose a sleek finish by painting your retaining wall in the same tones as your house or create a retaining wall feature by choosing a contrasting colour.
Add interest and further express your unique design aesthetic by choosing flush or external post tops and wall capping (available on VogueWall and EstateWall).
Ensure proper drainage for long-lasting results
Before installation, it’s vital to ensure you have allowed for adequate drainage. Failing to install sufficient drainage can lead to water accumulating behind the wall, so take the time to review your drainage to enjoy your outdoor space with confidence.
Combining form and function with retaining walls
Retaining walls combine form and function, allowing you to optimise your outdoor space for style and enjoyment.
