Often what customers choose for a display piece, a rock retaining wall can be an impressive addition to a property. A rock retaining wall is constructed of boulders; sometimes blasted on-site or acquired from a local quarry. A rock retaining wall is tricky structure to build.
It’s about more than just stacking rocks. The correct pieces must be selected and methodically placed so that the wall not only holds back the earth above it, but also retains its integrity for decades to come.
This type of wall is constructed of a grid of precast concrete blocks. Typically used in applications where the wall has to retain a large load and aesthetics are not a major consideration, lock block walls can be found all around Victoria and the South Island area. Lock blocks come in a few different styles to meet your requirements.
When constructing a lock block retaining wall, we carefully remove material and prepare the base to support the weight of the wall. The blocks are delivered to site and placed one at a time using either an excavator or a crane, depending on circumstances. The finished product is a very strong wall that will last for decades.
