Jakwall Timber Retaining Wall (registered design)

Jakwall is a highly unusual grooved, brick wall effect wooden garden retaining wall with many benefits compared to traditional brick walling; it is cheaper compared with bricks and mortar, doesn't need foundations or footings and can be installed in any weather.

Jakwall timber retaining wall comes in four options;

  • Option 1: With a 90mm grooved face towards the front, this option is ideal for creating retaining walls or raised flower beds. Code 171700
  • Option 2: This version has a 140mm grooved face to the front, this larger 'brick' effect front is more suitable for creating a retaining wall or fence by building single timbers up on top of each other to create any height wall/fence that you require. Code 171800
  • Option 3: is to have the timbers grooved all round, so every face shows the brick effect grooves. Code 171900
  • Option 4: is an ungrooved version of the Jakwall timbers, a great contemporary alternative to railway sleepers. Code 171910



The Jakwall timbers are fixed together with a timber hex head screw system without any need for pre-drilling, available in two lengths. Also available is a hex head driver bit for use with power tools. Jakwall planed all round and Jakcured. It is recommended that at least three timber screws are used for fixing per landscape timber depending on height of walling or structure.
