Renovations are expensive. Very expensive. And by the time you get to landscaping, it’s fair to say your budget has well and truly dried up. So when there’s an opportunity to cut down on costs but not sacrifice on quality or style…well, I’m all ears!
ModularWalls is a smart DIY option which has the look of a rendered brick wall, for just a fraction of the price. ModularWalls can be used for boundary fences to pool walls, or even to retain up to 750mm of soil; perfect for pools, sloped blocks and garden beds. Plus, no engineered footings or trades needed!
Made specifically for harsh Australian conditions, they are super durable and also reduce noise; ideal if you live on a busy road. But best yet, they’re fully customisable! You can add aluminium or timber slats, gates, lighting and letterboxes, or finish it with tiles, cladding, or paint in any colour of your choosing.
So they’re stylish, versatile and good quality. Tick, tick and tick. But what about the installation? How easy can it be to install a wall yourself?
Turns out, very. Installation is simply a matter of digging some holes, concreting the posts into position, sliding in the panels and finishing the fence as you desire — check out the video below if you don’t believe me! It can easily be done in a weekend, with no DIY experience required. The walls don’t even require council permission when they’re under 1.8m high, making the installation even simpler.
Still hesitant? Don’t be. ModularWalls provides tailored advice on style and materials, easy-to-follow installation guides, videos and 7-day phone support. But if DIY is still not for you, they also offer professional installation via their national network of Trade Partners.
Need some inspiration? Below are some of our favourite ModularWalls looks.
White and bright: Let the plants do the talking by using a solid, white backdrop. This helps bring a fresh, bright look to your garden and the colourful blooms will look amazing.
Drama, drama: A dramatic look, having a dark wall showcases your garden’s spectrum of colours and lends a modern feel to your property.
Keep it natural: A fence in natural tones perfectly complements the plants and creates a look that is simple and subtle. Suitable for all styles, the earthy wall colours blend beautifully with any garden.
Be bold: Feature panels can be a fun way to juxtapose materials and give your garden splashes of colour and depth.
Step it up: If your block is sloped, retaining walls can create the perfect tiered garden. Not only are they a good use of space, the gravity-fed irrigation system makes maintenance so much easier.
