Using either natural or reconstituted limestone blocks, developers across Perth are moving away from traditional fences and instead opting to build limestone retaining walls as decorative landscape features or functional sub-division barriers.
But, why are limestone retaining walls becoming so popular?
The Benefits of Limestone
Limestone is widely used within the construction industry for a number of projects, especially for retaining walls, but what makes limestone such a popular choice among builders and developers?
Some of the most notable benefits include:
- Excellent natural insulation
- Excellent fire and acoustic properties
- Easy to cut/install
- A more affordable option than some other popular building materials.
Plus, limestone retaining walls aren’t just practical, they’re also visually alluring, with a simple aesthetic that can easily stand the test of time.
What Applications are Limestone Retaining Walls Suitable For?
Limestone retaining walls can be implemented in:
- Freeway retaining walls/barriers
- Retaining walls in housing/land sub-division projects
- Entry statements in housing estates or commercial complexes in suburban areas
- Screen walls in commercial settings
- Large-scale garden retaining walls in commercial landscaping projects
They’re particularly popular as freeway and housing estate barriers not only because of their aesthetic appeal but also because of their sound-reducing properties.
