Concrete Sleepers vs Retaining Wall Blocks

At Australian Paving Centre, we are often asked which are better; Concrete Sleepers or Retaining Wall blocks?

More often Concrete sleepers are not cost effective because of all the extra items required for construction, such as the Steel H & C section and the cost of hiring hole borers plus the cost of concrete to fill all the post holes.

Then you have the issue of building the concrete sleeper walls. This can only be done with the help of 2 people or more and the back breaking work of lifting the sleepers in to place & sliding them down the steel channel.

The following products are cheaper & easier options than concrete sleepers.

All of the following systems can be built by one person & more cost effectively than concrete sleepers.
