Sandstone For Retaining Walls in Brisbane

You may need to build Retaining Walls around part of your property and be unsure of which material you should use. Sandstone is a great material which has many uses and is very effective when building a Retaining Wall. Brisbane Rock Sales offer the finest quality Sandstone no matter what the purpose. Here’s why you should use Sandstone for Retaining Walls.

Sandstone Retaining Walls Add Value

They have a natural look which works well with any property or garden. If you want to personalise your Sandstone wall,add some plants. You can plant them in the soil next to the Sandstone with ease. Flat capstone can be used on the final level to give a more finished look. They are practical as they hold the stones in place whilst still giving a great look.

Advantages over Brick or Block Walls

Sandstone is naturally porous which makes it ideal for use as a Retaining Wall. It differs from walls built using Sandstone Blocks and mortar, it will allow any moisture from the soil to simply soak through and seep away. This is handy as it has its own drainage system. It can become damaged from extremely high water pressure, however, this can easily be fixed. It’s easy to maintain and a simple rinse can get rid of stains. Sandstone is also a great option as you are not required to sink a footing as you would need to with concrete or bricks and mortar. This makes the installation process easier and less time consuming.


You can create any look you like, for example, you can build them in rows to give a uniform appearance. Or you can opt for a more random look. The wall fits together like a jigsaw puzzle and filler stones can be used to fill in the gaps. This makes it a great feature as its appealing to look at. It’s hard wearing so will continue to look its best for years to come.

Sandstone is a hard wearing and suitable material for Retaining Walls. It has a nice natural look whilst using flat capstone can give it a finished look. It’s permeable and doesn’t need a footing making it easier to install and maintain. It’s a versatile product with many uses.

    What Our Customer Says

    From the time I rang Brisbane Rock Sales to get some names for quotes to do this sandstone wall to completion, I could not have been happier with the whole process. The price came in as a reasonable amount of money after I had received quotes to get the wooden retaining wall replaced, the stones came in a lot cheaper. We couldn’t be happier with the end product and we were very impressed with the professionalism shown. Thank you for making the process less stressful and creating such a pleasing result.
