Brick Fences/Retaining Walls Combined
It’s very common for a brick fence to also act as a retaining wall for properties above or below street level, or to create planter boxes or level spaces in the garden for lawns. When this is the case it is very important to consider the design. Generally, if a brick fence is retaining more than 600mm it is good practice to incorporate a concrete block retaining wall to deal with the lateral forces and install ag lines to move water away. This can all be done without compromising the look of the brick fence by adding a facade of bricks in front of the blocks.
Below is an example of a brick fence we built in Maroubra which has a concrete block retaining wall behind it.
