Retaining walls from Amber Tiles are an easy do-it-yourself solution that can add sophistication and flair to the simplest of gardens.
Whether used for an al fresco level, a garden edge or a decorative feature, Amber’s brand new Amberwall is the ideal option to suit just about any garden design project and budget.
Mike Barden, Outdoor Products Expert at Amber explains that during the last decade, the smaller-face retaining walls have been deleted, meaning large-face, costly retaining walls have been almost the only option for those looking to do-it-themselves in the garden.
“The Amberwall however, is a large-face retaining wall that retails at the price of the smaller-face meaning more people can enjoy the aesthetics of a retaining wall in their front or back yard, without blowing out the budget.”
Typically built with a straightforward interlocking system, installing the Amberwall does not require the skills of a landscape artist. It boasts an easy-to-assemble drystack wall requiring no mortar, which means that a basic eroded garden can be transformed into a work of modern art by any gardening novice.
Being extremely flexible in design, the project may encompass straight walls, convex or concave curves, raised garden beds, right angle corners to complete the look and formal stairs to create a unique landscape effect.
Made from concrete with a framed-face block and adaptable design, Amber’s Amberwall is ideal for creating an elegant and blissful outdoor retreat.
To finish off the look and still come in under budget, Amber’s smooth sandstone capping for retaining walls replicates real sandstone producing a premium look without the hefty price tag.
- Sandstone Capping: Each piece is carefully crafted with both front and back edges rock-faced to enhance the natural stone look
- Sandstone Capping End: This end piece is rock-faced on three edges and designed to cap walls that end without a corner
- Sandstone Capping Full Corner: For walls that require corner returns, the cleverly designed full 90-degree piece ensures a smooth transition around the corner (designed for left and right hand corners)
- Sandstone Garden Edge: Designed to provide definition between a garden and lawn, the garden edge is solid with each piece featuring a thickness of 50mm. The front face of each piece is sparrow picked and complemented with a rock-faced top edge resulting in a stylish classic garden look.
