Looking to install retaining walls in Cape Town or nearby?
Are you looking for a trusted service provider to assist with the complete installation of retaining walls in Cape Town and surrounds? Decorton Retaining Systems Pty (Ltd) is a local service provider that specialises in retaining wall system construction and associated civil work. Our service expertise and product installations are available for both domestic and industrial applications and since we have been providing retaining solutions for many years, clients can have confidence in our team’s installations.
Our retaining wall structures are designed to retain soil at different levels and typically steep vertical slopes where soil otherwise does not stay fixed in place without some form of retention or support. Most often, our structures are installed in terrains where the landscape needs to be shaped for specific purposes such as roadways, farming, pavilions, and much more.
If a retaining wall is not designed and installed in the correct manner, it will not be able to resist the materials pushing against it and it will collapse. The soil type, weight of the soil, the best material for backfilling purposes and appropriate drainage processes all need to be considered when designing a retaining structure. This is why it is important to count on experienced engineers for the design and installation of retaining walls, no matter how small the project is.
There are many different types of retaining walls that are suited for different terrains and requirements. Our team is skilled in the design and installation of all kinds of retaining solutions to meet our clients’ diverse needs and we only make use of the best retaining products on the market to ensure a lasting result. Some of the quality products we use, include Decorwall® block, Löffelstein® blocks, Terraforce ® blocks and Grinaker Terrace Blok ®.
Our retaining structures at Decorton are designed and manufactured to offer support to soil masses and to retain soil on distinct levels behind the wall. These structures are specifically designed and installed to restrain soil at an angle that it would not normally retain without some form of artificial support.
We ensure that the wall structure is sufficiently strong to resist the lateral pressure of the surrounding soil and withstand the desired change in movement when the angle of repose is exceeded. With specially designed retaining blocks, we ensure that surrounding soil is bound together by installing a retaining wall between the varying elevations.
Retaining systems are most prevalent in terrains where undesirable slopes are present, where the landscape needs to be shaped for building or gardening purposes, and when making way for roads, railways, pools, etc. Our team has completed a diverse range of retaining projects over the years, from tennis courts and pavilions to landscaping projects, and more. Therefore, no matter how major or minor your retaining requirements, you can rely on us to get it done!

What we at Decorton can do for you:
Decorton offers a turnkey service to local industrial, commercial and domestic clients seeking reliable retaining walls in Cape Town and nearby. Most often, retaining wall blocks are manufactured in a grey colour, but should the client prefer, some products are also available in terracotta, sand or tan colours.
Our services are all inclusive and we specialise in the supply of a full range of leading concrete retaining and erosion systems, as well as in the design and construction of:
- precast retaining walls
- slope stabilisation
- embankment cladding
- canal lining
- shore protection
- hard and soft landscaping
We are active members of the Concrete Manufacturers Association (CMA) and the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB), so clients can rest assured that our retaining wall designs and installations adhere to national regulations. Some well-known projects that we have been part of, include Tygervalley Waterfront, Tygerberg Office Park, V&A Waterfront, Helderberg Village, and loads more.
Depending on the specific project and functionality of the installation, a retaining wall can be constructed with a solid rock face or with open jointed retaining wall blocks in which lush vegetation can be planted for aesthetic appeal. If you wish to plant vegetation to improve the look of your retaining wall, it is important to note that plants that grow well in sun and potted environments will work best.
Incorrectly designed and built retaining walls are not only dangerous, they are also visually less appealing. If not strong enough, heavy rains will easily move the retaining blocks, which will lead it to collapse eventually.
