Timber Retaining Walls were traditionally constructed with the original “old railway sleepers” which then moved onto Hardwood Sleepers. Although the treated timber doesn’t have as long as lifespan as the concrete sleeper retaining walls it is still a popular choice due to its versatility. As per the concrete sleeper retaining walls, timber retaining walls are used for garden beds, house blocks, roadways and the base of fences such as our timber paling fence and our COLORBOND® fence.

Checklist/Handy Hints

Below is a checklist of considerations you may need to address. Each situation will vary so you must be vigilant and ensure that you have consulted with an experienced Fencing Company, such as Dog Gone Fencing, to assist you with your individual needs.

  • Use our Fence Plan to accurately design and order the materials you require.

  • Discuss your needs with one of our qualified staff to place an order and ensure your materials will arrive in time for your project.

  • If your new fence is a boundary fence that you share with a neighbour, ensure that you have informed them of your intentions. You can use our “Good Neighbour Policy” as a guide to help you.

  • Consult with a surveyor if your boundary lines are in any way unclear. Just because there is an existing fence, does not mean it was constructed on the correct boundary line.
