Retaining Walls <600mm

What are retaining wall blocks?

Retaining wall block systems not only add value and practicality to your residential and commercial property, but the various colours and wall types available to you also add visual attractiveness to any area needing to be retained.

Concrete retaining wall blocks are easy to install. MD Brick can supply retaining wall blocks to retain soil, reclaim sloping land and build garden beds or even for simple jobs such as veggie gardens or planter boxes.

With an extensive selection of colours, shapes and sizes MD Brick has the block you are looking for. Whether it be for a straight, curved, setback, engineered, garden edging wall or steps it is important you consider the technical considerations before you build. 

Retaining Walls

Considerations when choosing your retaining wall blocks

  • Do you require a garden wall to enhance your home or a retaining wall for structural purposes?
  • You may need to choose a different type of block depending on the height your job needs to be.
  • Is the wall in a visible area that people will see?
  • What colour will work best in your space?
  • What is the maximum height the wall will reach? This will help determine what wall you will need and what type of reinforcement (if any) is required.
  • Do you require a curved or straight wall?
  • Are there corners or stairs in your wall?
    Are you installing the wall yourself or do you need a contractor?
  • Does your wall need capping units?
    Have you considered drainage?
