Regarded as ‘temporary’ walling in the industry. If treated pine retaining walls were built to meet specified requirements they are no cheaper than masonry walling. The reason they are regarded as being cheaper to construct is that people, both tradesmen and home owners alike, use horizontal sleepers and vertical posts far to light for the wall size.

Also, most importantly, the ability of ‘treated’ pine to resist termites can be questionable depending on where it has come from. Also bear in mind this treated pine is not resistant to rotting in the ground. It is not waterproof and as such will rot, the speed of which is determined by the type of ground it is in and the drainage incorporated into the new walling. It is not cheap having to rebuild the wall a second time.

Unfortunately these aspects are fact.
