Retaining Walls and Gabion Baskets

Retaining Walls

Most of our retaining walls are built on the Port Hills but we’re able to help you plan and install them where ever needed in Christchurch. We have a huge range of machinery and extensive experience within our team to make sure the site is evaluated thoroughly and the work is carried out safely, to a high standard and within your timeline and agreed budget. There are 2 main types of retaining walls that we deal with.

Timber Retaining Walls

Timber retaining walls are made up of posts and rounds. We have the knowledge, experience, excavation and augering equipment ready to access almost any site within Canterbury and build the right wall, the right way.

Gabion Baskets

Gabion Baskets are a cheaper alternative to wood. Their flexibility means they have the ability to flex and bend but not break under stress. The permeability of the design also reduces the need for separate drainage. They’re also virtually maintenance free.
