FAQ

Do I need a permit to build a retaining wall in Victoria?
If a retaining wall on your property is 1 meter or taller, you will need to get a building permit in order to prevent any damage that could possibly occur to the surrounding area. It’s best to consult a qualified tradie such as a bricklayer, carpenter, or landscaper.
What are the three types of retaining walls?
There are three main types of retaining walls: gravity walls, cantilevered walls, and braced walls.
A gravity wall is the simplest type. It’s simply a wall that relies on its own weight to keep it in place. A cantilevered wall is a more complex design that uses a beam or girder to hold up the wall. This type of wall is often used when there’s not enough room for a traditional gravity wall. A braced wall is similar to a cantilevered wall, but it uses diagonal braces instead of a beam or girder to hold it up.
What is the best material to use for retaining walls?
Concrete retaining wall blocks are a popular choice because they are relatively inexpensive and easy to install. They are also durable and long-lasting. These blocks come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so you can find one that will fit the needs of your project. They also come in a variety of colors, so you can choose one that will match the aesthetics of your home or yard.
How deep should a 3-foot retaining wall be?
A good general rule is to bury the first course of blocks about one-eighth of the total height of the wall. So, if your wall will be three feet (36 inches) tall, the first layer should start five inches below ground level.
Do you need a concrete base for a retaining wall?
A retaining wall does not necessarily need a concrete base. However, it is often recommended to have a concrete base for the following reasons:

a. To provide a level surface on which to build the wall
b. To help distribute the weight of the wall and soil behind it
c. To prevent the soil from pushing up against the wall and destabilizing it
