Sandstone rock walls are so diverse that they can be used in a variety of different ways. Some of these include:

Residential and Commercial use

Sandstone is heavily used in commercial and residential projects, especially used when building retaining walls. It is common for walls to become infected with termites that eventually eat up the walls and cupboards of your house and make your house weak, vulnerable and full of termites.

Sandstone retaining walls are termite proof and far cheaper than brick or wooden walls.

Sandstone World offers several kinds of rock walls, including:

· Hammered Random (Manhandables)
· Hammered Random (Machine Moveable)
· B Grade (2-4 Sawn Sided)
· B Grade Premium (5 Sawn Sided)
· A Grade (5 Sawn Sided)
· A Grade (6 Sawn Sided)

The warm and elegant colours of the sandstone bring in the perfect effect to your homes, making sandstone the sought after stone for rock walls.

You can also have the walls of your office buildings redefined with retaining sandstone walls. It is also a good idea to have your area landscaped with retaining walls. You can landscape your pool, garden or any outdoor area or ground with these as they help prevent soil erosion all the while making the area look beautiful and sophisticated.

Why is it a good idea to use Sandstone rock walls?

Rock walls are sturdy and strong which means they add to the overall reliability of any structure. They can protect your pools from soil erosion by preventing the rainfall from washing soil and other dirt into your pool’s clear water.

Practical uses aside, sandstone is also one of the prettiest and most versatile stones used in residential and commercial projects. When you coordinate the colours of your retaining walls with the surroundings, it can leave a breathtaking effect on your outdoors.

Sometimes, it so happens that there are streams or lakes flowing through your property that leads the soil around it to become too moist and bring instability in the structures built around the area. You can use retaining walls to separate the land and the water from each other and prevent the water from seeping into the soil and becoming too moist. This improves the site’s drainage system.

Another way to use retaining walls smartly is through the process of terracing. On a bigger level, terracing is used to create steps or levels on very steep slopes that are otherwise unusable. Creating these levels supports flat spaces that become usable for agricultural purposes.

On a more residential level, these terraces can be used to create functional outdoor rooms, connected with stairs and maybe even walkways that will lead you through your backyard and the surrounding spaces. These retaining walls can also be used to have integrated water features.

You can also use retaining walls for purely decorative purposes and add a frame to the landscape of your backyard either through the use of stone veneers and coping, or by painting plastered walls to compliment your surroundings’ colour scheme.
