At Hammer Excavations, we have spent many of our years perfecting our craft, building retaining walls on a range of layouts, some difficult areas, some hard to access. This is our job, this is what we do, we have now gained a reputation as experts in the trade, with many happy customers to vouch for us.

Alex and the team at hammer excavations completed an amazing transformation of our backyard. I would highly recommend them as I was blown away with the level of professionalism, knowledge and communication of the team. Due to the steep gradient and complexities of our site Alex came up with a cost effective solution to assist with maintaining our strict budget for the project and ultimately transformed our yard into a beautiful oasis that we can enjoy for years to come. I would definitely call them again for any future excavation works I have.


Using stone and boulders of all sizes and shapes, this rock retaining wall or rockwall design has become a popular look across Melbourne properties. Durable, sleek, modern and low maintenance rock walls can transform your outdoor area from a boring space to a dream. Rock retaining walls are extremely functional, helping with retaining earth, water run off and aesthetic appeal. Rock retaining walls have been added to many landscaping projects recently and are a wonderful addition to your garden or back yard.

Using a stacked boulder approach, rock walls can be made from natural rock, limestone, mud stone, brick, concrete, river rock and just about any solid rock you can think of. Layered and stacked, these walls are strong and can hold back a huge amount of garden bed or earth.

The primary function of these walls is to strengthen the the slope, to retain the earth on a steep slope, to cut a lower level, to reinforce a site cut so that a split level can be created, often for residential projects but also for large developments. 
Rock retaining walls are now also commonly used for a decorative feature, as they add a very pleasing look to any landscape design. 

On properties where land slips or land collapse are prone, a wall like this is exactly what you need to maintain a safe area.
