Keystone Concrete Block Retaining Walls for Unexpected Construction Needs in Gold Coast Home

Keystone Concrete Block Retaining Walls for Unexpected Construction Needs in Gold Coast Home

Client Challenge:

The client was taken aback to discover that the construction of their house pad necessitated significantly more retaining walls than initially anticipated—a common oversight not just among homeowners but also among seasoned builders. This unexpected requirement posed a challenge in terms of both design and budget for the project.

Our Solution:

Australian Retaining Walls presented the homeowner with several retaining options, taking into account both functionality and aesthetic appeal. After careful consideration, the homeowner chose Keystone concrete blocks, a decision influenced by the block's durability and the attractive charcoal colour, which harmonises well with a variety of landscapes. We designed the retaining wall to include geotextile fabric, 20mm drainage gravel, and 100mm agricultural pipe to ensure proper drainage and longevity, addressing the homeowner's needs and exceeding their expectations.


The Keystone concrete block retaining wall not only resolved the unexpected need for additional retaining but also added a visually appealing element to the property. The charcoal colour of the blocks provided a modern and sophisticated touch, complementing the overall aesthetic of the home. The comprehensive drainage system integrated into the wall guarantees its longevity, offering the homeowner peace of mind with a solution that is both beautiful and built to last.

Project Highlights:

This project highlights Australian Retaining Walls' ability to adapt and provide effective solutions for unexpected construction challenges on the Gold Coast. The use of Keystone concrete blocks exemplifies our commitment to delivering durable and aesthetically pleasing retaining wall solutions, tailored to meet the unique needs and preferences of our clients.
