At CN Builders Streatley Berkshire, we have years of experience in designing and constructing a vast array of retaining walls for gardens. We have carried out this work over a long period of time to help meet a great array of client requirements and delivered a great number of projects large and small.
Garden sites are seldomly flat and retaining walls are often used to great effect as a means to create attractive level changes that give spaces an added uniqueness. We always consider the existing lay of the land as a practical approach, especially since many retaining walls in gardens are built out of necessity to help ensure the land is able to work better.
As with any of our other building services, we always make sure that suitable foundations are used and the retaining walls are finished to the same very high standards that our reputation is based on. In any case we strive to make sure any building works are carried out matching any existing brickwork to adhere to planning regulations if required. Having a nice flower arrangement in place is one aspect, however having well constructed garden brickwork can make all the difference to the end result.
Waterproofing and drainage is another area which is greatly taken into consideration. Water greatly contributes to the weight being supported by retaining walls. We always advise using land drains that are connected to the external mains services.
