Jakwall Timber Retaining Wall (registered design)

Jakwall is a distinctive grooved, brick effect landscape timber system, unique to Jacksons Fencing.Our Jakwall timber garden sleepers are available in two designs the first of our designs having grooves across the timbers.  

Grooved Jakwall timber garden sleepers have a unique brick effect design. They were designed to be an alternative to traditional brick walling as a cheaper, more natural looking product.  

Grooved Jakwall options include: 

Option 1: Product code – 171700 –  90mm grooved face towards the front, this option is ideal for creating retaining walls or raised flower beds. The most popularly used lookalike brick wall effect.   

Option 2: Product code – 171900 – Grooved all round (on all sides), every face shows brick effect grooves. Great for raised garden beds. 

Option 3: Product code 171801- 140mm grooved face to the front, this larger ‘brick’ effect front is more suitable for creating a timber wall of barrier by building up timbers on top of each other.  

Where possible, avoid cutting, drilling or notching any timber that will be in-ground, as per our 25 year Jakcure® terms and conditions. If occasional sections do have to be cut then Cut Treatment should be applied liberally.

Contemporary Garden Sleepers

Ungrooved Jakwall is our contemporary garden sleeper with a smooth face. Ungrooved Jakwall is a great choice for raised garden beds or retaining walls in more contemporary gardens.

Option 4: Product code 171910– No grooves but with smooth edges. 


How to install Jakwall Garden Sleepers 

The Jakwall timber garden sleepers are fixed together with a timber hex head screw system without any need for pre-drilling, which is available in two lengths. Also available is a hex head driver bit for use with power tools.  

Jakwall is planed all round and timber treated. It is recommended that at least three timber screws are used for fixing per landscape timber depending on height of walling or structure.
