Riverstones, Limestones, & Greywacke

Certain areas in Wellington better be using riverstones or limestones for convenience and durability of the finish product. Riverstones are natural stones sourced locally, which can create a grand entranceway for your property. Riverstones and graywacke are much darker than limestones, but if you want an eye-catching retaining wall, limestone would be an excellent choice.

Granite & Bluestones

The Otago Schist stone is a natural stone known for its distinctive creamy appearance. It’s commonly used in commercial landscaping, foundations, and even cladding. Hinuera rocks are natural volcanic stones, darker than the latter, and can be sourced directly from Waikato. It’s perfect for front yard designing and landscaping. On the other hand, real schist cladding is between 150 – 180mm thick and are better used for cladding. Whilst it can be used for retaining walls, many people prefer to use it since it’s easier to approve.

Otago Schist, Hinuera & Oamaru

Granite and bluestones are popular retaining wall alternatives. What makes them special is that they can be cut according to the size of the space where thick be used.

How Long Should Stone Walls Be?

A stone retaining wall can be built safely up to 3-4 feet, without concrete footings. If soil is used as the wall foundation, we need to tamp it to a depth of 12-18 inches. If the retaining wall exceeds the allowable height, that is the time it will require building consent from Wellington council.
