New Concrete Sleeper Retaing Wall and Timber Fence

Nerang Retaining Wall – The Unseen Issues

A recent client in Nerang had a timber retaining wall, with timber fence attached, leaning into his neighbour’s property. A timber deck was built out to the retaining wall. Not an uncommon scenario. The highest portion of the retaining wall was 1.6m.
