They have the ability to transform an average looking garden into something that will stand out and give you that wow factor in your garden. They are very catchy on the eye and will last for a very long time. These type of retaining walls are a feature within itself, they simply look great. And if you’re looking to build a retaining wall for your Central Coast property, there a good option.

Sandstone retaining walls are not as expensive as some might think, compared to other types of retaining walls. Like all walls, they all have their positives and it comes down to your budget and the style you want.


Depending on what you want, there’s a couple of options. A clean cut block sandstone wall is probably the most popular, but you also have other options like a rock retaining wall, or a sandstone block retaining wall. All have their place.


Sandstone rock retaining walls give you that extra difference and unique appeal. Having all the rocks a different shape looks great on the eye. But can be a little more expensive because of the labour aspect. They also offer a clean cut style of retaining wall. But it’s well worth it, In my opinion, they look great.

Building A Sandstone Retaining Wall. My Options

To some, it can be down to budget, but for others, it’s not about the cost as you’re looking for a particular look and feel to your property. From my opinion and experience that’s what I’d expect to be the case. But you do have other options. You can choose to go with what is called a B grade sandstone block. They have fewer cuts than what’s classified as an A grade block. And yes they are a cheaper option.

To be honest you probably wouldn’t even notice. If you’re after a high quality retaining wall and a certain type, we can also cover that. Overall there’s not going to be much difference, and if budget is a concern we can certainly discuss your options.
