Family owned and operated
Urban Retaining Walls and Landscaping is a family owned and operated business. We specialise in the design and construction of concrete sleeper retaining walls, fencing installation services using all types of materials from timber to glass, and landscaping services.
Quality, Safety, Customer Service
Our focus is on quality construction, safety-first and exceptional customer service.
Our company was founded by Company Director Grant Raedel in 2008. After travelling the world, Grant’s passion for building retaining walls, fence construction and landscaping saw him jump on the business idea after he found there was a gap in the market for a dedicated group of retaining wall specialists. Grant’s engineering and construction background saw him team up with a crew of eager followers, keen to help him provide quality fencing and landscaping solutions.
Rather than relying on a team of unreliable sub-contractor’s, Grant designed the business around providing a reliable, trust-based quality service. And so the family moved on in, as every good family does! Soon after starting up, Grant’s father Greg came onboard as office manager, bringing with him his wealth of experience from 30 years owning a landscaping business. Greg enjoys working alongside his family, taking the necessary time to keep them on their toes – as every father does.
In 2013 Grant’s brother Martin joined the team as Site Foreman after having worked on drilling sites across the country. With a commercial construction background, Martin has ventured from as far away as Karatha, up to Darwin and Northern NSW – before heading back to his home base in Queensland. Experienced in drilling, engineering, landscaping and piling for wind turbines, Martin escaped the hustle and bustle of the mines (and the bush) to join the family business.
Since moving back from the UK, their sister Karmen, who is a professional photographer, has been responsible for creating the videography and the amazing photos on this website. Karmen has also spent countless hours assisting in the invoicing, quoting and IT setup of the business.
