17 Jan Natural Earth Blocks – Perfect Choice for Rural Property Retaining Walls
Do you live on a rural property on the outskirts of Perth? Or have you traded the hustle and bustle of city living for the peace and tranquillity of a sprawling rural block? Whether it be in Byford, Serpentine, North Dandalup, South Yunderup or Pinjarra, to mention a few of the areas where large land lots are being developed. Are you looking for building materials to complement your surroundings? Have you heard of or even considered natural earth blocks?
Natural earth blocks use a combination of laterite in a reconstituted or engineered block. Laterite is a reddish clay material that lends a rusty red colour to the block, as opposed to the traditional crème colour of reconstituted limestone blocks.
Laterite is sourced from the Perth hills and mixed with cement and recycled building materials to produce red natural earth blocks. When Laterite is exposed to air, the moisture evaporates, and the moist clay material hardens into a rigid structure. This results in natural earth blocks with added strength and resistant to changes in atmospheric conditions.
Natural earth blocks can be used to build:
- Mass retaining walls.
- Full height boundary walls.
- Low boundary walls made for colour bond fencing to be installed on top.
- Screen and Feature

The colours and texture of natural earth blocks blend with the Australian native landscape, while withstanding the harsh and extreme Australian climate. These earthy tones and roughened surfaces, makes the natural earth block the perfect choice to build a range of limestone walls suitable for your rural property.
