Wall of Life

Can you ‘grow your own’ retaining wall?

Every slope is different. There are situations when an engineered retaining wall is required. Other times we find that a living, green retaining wall of native plants looks great and works beautifully.

It’s all about choosing a diverse range of plants that are self sustaining while needing minimal maintenance. Fast growing, short lived native plants are fine, as long as their replacements (the next stage) are planted at the same time. Ideally, there will be two layers of plants growing under a dense upper canopy: that’s 3 layers of plants between sky and soil.
