Hi All,

Attached are photos of what happened to my garden retaining wall. I am looking to get this fixed before the sand collapses on a rainy day.
Please let me know on your thoughts on how this can be fixed and how much it will be including material?

thanks

Offer is to install 2x galvanised steel joiner posts & extension pegs.
Was the post buried or was it just on top of the pavement?
If you're not sure- can you check under the leaves where the sleepers join the post that fell out/ or snapped off?

The posts for retaining walls have to be buried in cement to bear heavy loads.
If it was cemented then that will need to be dug out to install new posts.

Another thing is that a retaining wall is not considered a fence, it is for retaining land mass within a boundary... so its actually only there for the property above....hence it is their responsibility to fix/maintain it...not yours...so you can get them to sort it out or send them the bill after you do.... unlike a fence where its joint responsibility/shared obligation

I'll attach a picture of what the wall should be made from to prevent this sort of thing.

This offer is for labour & tools only, materials will cost approx $150 (cement, posts & pegs.)
