Concrete Retaining Wall Replacement on Gold Coast Main Road

Concrete Retaining Wall Replacement on Gold Coast Main Road

Client Challenge

The client, located on a busy main road in Gold Coast, needed to replace a failing timber retaining wall. The wall's high visibility due to constant passing traffic demanded a durable and aesthetically pleasing solution. The property owner opted for a Flush Face Garden Wall concrete block system with matching steps in a striking charcoal colour to enhance curb appeal and ensure longevity.

Our Solution

Australian Retaining Walls recommended the Flush Face Garden Wall concrete blocks for their durability and modern look. The old timber wall was efficiently demolished by our digger and loaded into a skip bin. During preparation, we identified and repaired a damaged stormwater pipe, redirecting it to prevent future interference with the new wall. With the site ready, we commenced the construction.


The main section of the concrete retaining wall and the return were built first to ensure a seamless integration of the matching steps between the new wall and the existing brick mailbox. The charcoal-coloured blocks provided a sleek, contemporary finish that significantly improved the property's appearance and matched the busy, urban environment. The upgraded retaining wall now offers both functionality and an attractive frontage that withstands the test of time and traffic.
