Stone Retaining Walls Perth
Why build a natural stone retaining wall?
To preserve the long-lasting integrity of your home or property. Retaining walls are essential for maintaining the stability of a concerned area by preventing soil erosion. A well-built retaining wall from ShamROCK Stonemasons is suitable for use in bushfire prone areas, is load bearing and unaffected by foot traffic or heavy pot plants, will assist with storm-water management and requires little to no maintenance.
To increase the usable area of your land. Retaining walls allow you to terrace and divide a sloping landscape, increasing the functional and level area which can be utilised as gardens, seating, accent features or outdoor living spaces. A unique element natural hand-cut stone offers is the ability to create curving retaining walls to complement the lay of the land or to temper the look of a stark square plot. Additionally retaining walls reduce water run-off, so much needed rainwater soaks into your thirsty Perth garden, rather than being lost to storm-water drains. This water retention is also important for protecting; shared water systems from harmful amounts of introduced nutrients, surrounding environments from garden pesticides.
Stonemasonry is an ancient craft which typically involves using hand-shaped quarried stone to build features and structures, with or without the use of mortar. Walls built without mortar are known as dry stone or stacked walls. Another method of stonework that omits the use of mortar is Gabion stone walls, or simply put, a mesh form, filled with stone.
