Uses for Retaining Walls

What are retaining walls used for, anyway? Primarily, retaining walls are for keeping back soil at two levels. If a yard has a steep slope, retaining walls help transform it into a more attractive shape. Retaining walls have also helped clear the path for the construction of highways. Other than roads, they prepare the space for stadiums, parking lots, and other more significant projects.

Why Limestone?

There are a few reasons we chose limestone for our retaining walls. A sedimentary rock, limestone is a type of marble that is the base for several crystals. These include Septarian, dolomite, agate, lapis, and calcite. Given this variety, you'll spot brown, grey, yellow, and white limestone. Additionally, limestone is a popular choice for retaining walls in Perth because of its accessibility. It is also easy to work with since it's a soft rock. Despite its relative softness, limestone is quite tough. Because it forms in water, it can hold up against harsh weather conditions. Lastly, we can't forget the obvious beauty. The motion of water waves formed every piece of limestone in your retaining wall.

Residential Limestone Walls

Here at Creative Limestone, we build limestone retaining walls in Perth for residential areas. Given the varying degree of slopes, every yard is a unique challenge. However, there is one underlining factor for houses in Perth, and that is loose soil. Without retaining walls, your land runs the risk of shifting. If you want to add a swimming pool, sheds, or other landscape features, limestone walls will stabilize your yard by moulding it into a flat surface. If you're not looking to even out the terrain of your lawn, limestone retaining walls built around your home provide privacy and security. It will also help block out the noises of traffic.

We are delighted with the quality of the work that was carried out and the team were a pleasure to have on site and again very easy to work with. I would certainly recommend Creative Limestone to anyone." Very happy customers


We couldn't be happier with all the work Paul and Mark have done at our house, and I would happily recommend Creative Limestone to anybody considering limestone work. Their work is to an exceptional standard, but they are also engaging and helpful throughout the whole process. -Thanks again Creative Limestone


After having worked with you and your team, I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to my colleagues and others. I have found you to be straight up and down [as I like] and always willing to help find the best solution [especially when it wasn’t the last solution]. In dealing with the public you have been reliable and have taken responsibility for ensuring any issues are resolved without the need for my involvement. Add to that quality of workmanship and a competitive price, and Creative Limestone has a compelling story to tell.


We purchased a difficult block that required a lot of site works and retaining, which was daunting at first. We had several contractors quote the work but found Mark from Creative Limestone to be the most friendly and professional by far. We quickly had a written quote and knew exactly what we were up for from the start. Mark would regularly contact us with updates, and once the site works started, our retaining wall was built promptly and finished perfectly. Mark helped us beyond finishing the wall with contacts for other trades and completing our site works ready to build. I have already recommended Creative Limestone to our friends and would not hesitate to call Creative Limestone if we need any work done in the future.


I have used Creative Limestone for my front wall and they are amazing


The team of guys are amazing! Not only do they do an amazing and quality job, the whole team is polite and very professional. Paul went above and beyond for our build and we are so very grateful. Thank you to everyone involved, we love our new addition to our home.


Mark from Creative Limestone has completely transformed my whole yard with a landscape package which included: - Design - Soak wells and storm water drainage - Limestone paving and edging - Limestone planter boxes and capping - Tropical plants and reticulation - Artificial Turf. Workmanship is of the highest quality and the transformation is amazing. Customer service provided was excellent and very professional, with regular updates and flexibility to accommodate minor changes. I would undoubtedly recommend Mark to any prospective clients as I am absolutely thrilled with the end result, so thank you very much to you and your team of tradesmen.
