A retaining wall is a structure used to sustain the soil mass horizontally, ensuring that the soil on one side of the wall is retained or maintained when the levels on either side are different. As a result, retaining wall posts are built to hold soil in place. Ordinarily, walls are built raising general structures to bear vertical loads, whereas retaining walls are specifically designed to bear horizontal loads.
The retaining wall’s strength is simply determined by the height difference on both sides of the wall and its height above the finished ground level on the higher side. Thus, when constructing such walls, these details must be given the utmost importance because they will inevitably define the overall strength you require. As one cannot keep these minute details in mind, it is better to get it done by professionals. A Class Timber & Hardware Suppliers in Melbourne offers the best range of retaining wall steel post supplies. With our experience and knowledge, we have been able to provide premium products to all our customers.

Types of Different Materials Used to Build Retaining Wall
Stone veneer: Stone veneer is a protective material that can be used as a covering for the surfaces of retaining walls. It adds beauty to your retaining wall but has no load-bearing capacity. Beautiful patterns, colours, unique shapes, and even lichen growing on the rock are some distinguishing characteristics of these materials.
Wood / Timbers: This material is low-cost and ideal for do-it-yourselfers (DIYs). It is one of the most preferred materials but you should be careful while choosing the type of wood as per your requirement. Moreover, a basic crushed stone footing and T-shaped timber deadmen are required to anchor these walls.
Poured Concrete: As the most durable and strongest option, concrete can be stained, stamped, veneered, or carved to look like mortared stone. You can purchase dry concrete or wet concrete and leave the design, formwork, and pouring part to professionals.
Boulders: These are one of the oldest types of retaining wall materials. Boulders are the most common type of natural stone available, with a wide range of shapes or sizes and have low maintenance requirements. As opposed to quarried stone or manufactured modular blocks, they are broadly accessible and ready to use for retaining wall construction perhaps without further refinement. At the same time, they retain the majority of the benefits of the furnished stones and can last for a long time.
