Hand-Built Sandstone Rock Walls in Gold Coast Backyard

Hand-Built Sandstone Rock Walls in Gold Coast Backyard

Client Challenge

The homeowners were frustrated with their deteriorating timber retaining walls that no longer provided the necessary stability or aesthetic appeal to their property. The backyard's limited access, which prevented the use of machinery, added complexity to the task of replacing these walls.

Our Solution

Australian Retaining Walls opted for sandstone rock walls as the ideal replacement for the old timber structures. Given the access restrictions, these walls were constructed entirely by hand. The team's expertise in traditional stone masonry allowed for the precise placement and alignment of each sandstone rock, ensuring both structural integrity and visual appeal. Additionally, at the homeowners' request, a concrete path around the side of the garage was removed to further enhance the area's layout.


The new sandstone rock walls not only resolved the issues posed by the old timber walls but also revitalized the backyard's appearance. The hand-built technique ensured that each stone was perfectly positioned, creating a robust and attractive feature that complements the natural landscape. The removal of the concrete path also improved the overall flow and utility of the outdoor space.

Project Highlights

This project demonstrated Australian Retaining Walls' capability to handle complex challenges, such as building without mechanical assistance and performing precise handiwork under constrained conditions. The sandstone rock walls are a testament to the craftsmanship and dedication of the team, highlighting their ability to deliver high-quality, enduring solutions that enhance both the functionality and the aesthetics of a space.
