48m Retaining Wall – Ogilvie Homes – Home Farm, Stirling

Home Farm is located in the village of Cambusbarron, south west of Stirling and just 6 minutes from the city centre.

This peaceful and picturesque village dates back to the Bronze and Iron Age and is close to the historic area of Gillies Hill, not only the site of an Iron Age fort believed to have housed the camp of Robert The Bruce prior to the Battle of Bannockburn, but also home to a variety of wildlife such as Roe Deer, Peregrine Falcons, Red Squirrels and Buzzards.

WoodBlocX were chosen to add a decorative and practical retaining wall to the back of the new builds. The retaining wall measured 48 meters in length with a height rising to 850mm. We had to incorporate a step into the wall as well as a slight curve to take into account the undulating back.

The combination of the stone wall at the top of the bank and wooden retaining wall makes a really nice feature that when planted, will help bring to life what could have been a dark and uninviting space.
