These old railway sleeper walls had come to the end of their effective life at around 25 years in ground and our client in Robina, Gold Coast Qld was looking for an alternative to timber.
Australian Retaining Walls advised our client that a Charcoal Colour – Split Face Besser Block wall would be perfect for their property and they agreed. The old pergola and pool fencing would have to be removed along with ripping out the old sleeper wall and all the ferns that had grown through.
Our micro excavator would be needed to dig out a footing because of the limited access and the close proximity of the swimming pool. Ever care must be taken during this process so not to disturb the existing structures. Once the earthworks were carefully completed a concrete footing was poured and building could get underway. For an aesthetic touch, Black oxide would be blended with the mortar to create a charcoal colour to match the Besser blocks.
When the Split Face Besser Block wall work was completed, the blocks were core filled for extra strength and finally capped for the perfect finish to this Charcoal Colour – Split Face Besser Block wall.
