Upgrading to a Diamond Block Retaining Wall

Upgrading to a Diamond Block Retaining Wall

Client Challenge:

Frequently encountered in our line of work, a property owner faced the dilemma of an old, deteriorating timber retaining wall, vulnerable to rot and termite damage. This common issue necessitated urgent action to prevent further structural compromise and ongoing termite attraction.

Our Solution:

The resolution involved removing the compromised timber wall to eliminate a future termite food source. In its place, the client opted for a robust Diamond Block Retaining Wall. By positioning the new wall slightly forward of the original, we minimised the need for excavation, offering a cost-effective solution for the homeowner.


The transition to a Diamond Block Retaining Wall not only revitalized the property's appearance but also substantially elevated its value. The sturdy and aesthetically pleasing nature of diamond block construction guarantees longevity and resilience, significantly enhancing the landscape's appeal.

Project Highlights:

  • Location: Gold Coast
  • Original Wall: Timber, compromised by rot and termites
  • Replacement: Diamond Block Retaining Wall, strategically placed for cost efficiency
  • Advantages: Improved aesthetic appeal, heightened property value, and enduring structure

This case study is a testament to our dedication to delivering lasting, value-enhancing retaining wall solutions that cater to the specific needs of each property on the Gold Coast. Witness the dramatic before-and-after transformation, illustrating the benefits of upgrading to a Diamond Block Retaining Wall.
