QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD ASK

How much does RIDGI cost?

Please visit the Special orders or Trade desk at your local Bunnings store

Can I install it myself?

Yes you can! The product has been designed for the home handyman. If you decide you want a professional to install your wall, please contact Aussie Concrete Products on 07 3348 1200 to enquire.

What other projects can I use the RIDGI system for?

Besides being ideal for retaining walls below 1m high, the RIDGI system is extensively used for raised garden and veggie beds, garden edging, maximising areas with limited space and stepping a slope.

What are the advantages of a RIDGI system?

The Do-it-yourself RIDGI system requires no building permit or council approval, it is designed for minimal maintenance and longevity. The RIDGI sleeper designs and finishes are exceptional give an aesthetic finish.

The RIDGI system is backed by years of know-how, experience and rigorous testing by Aussie Concrete Products.

Do I need Drainage?

Yes. If you do not have adequate drainage for your retaining wall the build-up of water behind the wall increases the load on the wall beyond the level that it was designed for.

Drainage is relatively simple to install and will also prevent seepage through your wall.

Need advise? Contact us or call 1300 367 903.

Do I need a Building Permit?

You need a building permit for retaining walls constructed on or near site boundaries where there is a risk of damage of adjoining property or if the wall that you are constructing is 1 metre or more in height.

Please have a look at our premium range of products for retaining walls above 1m. Click here.

Do I need a Planning Permit?

In general you do not need a planning permit for a retaining wall unless you have either a heritage overlay or an Environmental Significance Overlay with a schedule of tree control. However we recommend that you contact your local council to check if you need a planning permit.

Do I need engineering?

In general if your wall needs a permit you need engineering. That means that if your wall is over 1m high or if the wall built on or near site boundaries where there is a risk of damage to adjoining properties, you need to have engineering done. You may need to use our Pioneer product if required to meet Australian Standard or specified by an engineer.

Do I need a Registered Building Practitioner?

Only Registered Building Practitioners meet the legal requirements to carry out works valued over $3,300. So when you use a registered building practitioner you can be confident that they are qualified, experienced and insured as required.
