Damp conditions and direct sunlight make timber retaining walls perfect for Termites

Timber sleeper retaining walls are extremely popular and can be found in most Australian yards, as can Termites.

However nice and neat they look when first installed, timber retaining walls eventually break down and become buffets for Termites. Even treated timber loses it’s protection being exposed to sun and rain. Timber in direct contact with soil often carries high moisture and this the perfect home for a Termite Nest. If building timber retaining walls we suggest thinking ahead and allow sufficient drainage behind and below the wall.
