For specialist landscaping services and retaining walls, it’s Fletchers. We’re actually based in Strathalbyn but work across the greater Adelaide Hills. Our customers tell us we have some of the most affordable prices and friendly service. A retaining wall is both a practical and design feature that frames a garden bed, reduces run-off (which we get a lot of in the Hills), and is a visible divider. It’s not just a concrete or stone wall, but a gorgeous art piece that adds value to your lifestyle and house.
We work with property developers building large new estates, and mum and dad type developers looking to subdivide sloping blocks.
For 20 years, we’ve provided landscaping, paving, and retaining wall services to our region. Our customers are homeowners, builders, display homes, and local businesses. Installing a retaining wall can offer a myriad of benefits, especially for properties with tight access or an awkward layout. Being Hills locals, too, we have a deep understanding of council regulations and rules. Contact our residential yard experts about your needs. We offer a large variety of retaining wall options that can suit every need.
Our home is Strathalbyn
Strathalbyn (5255) is a quaint, charming town with a population of 6,400. It’s approximately 20 minutes from Mount Barker, 25 minutes from Goolwa, and 30 minutes from Murray Bridge. You can have the hills, beach or river all within half an hour from home. This makes ‘Strath’ a lucrative place to live. Drive 10 minutes down the road to Langhorne Creek to hop between wineries and cellar doors. It’s your own little wine region in your backyard. Pop into Angas Plains Wines, Vineyard Road Cellar Door, Rusticana Wines, Lake Breeze Wines, Bleasdale, Bremerton Wines, The Winehouse, and Kimbolton Wines – with many more still to explore.
Food, farms, and family fun
Strathalbyn is dubbed as ‘South Australia’s prettiest historic town’ and for good reason. Take a walk-through Strath and it feels like you’re in another time period. If you’re out and about, there’s plenty of food options available. For a classic Adelaide Hills pub, visit the Victoria Hotel, Robin Hood Hotel, and Terminus Hotel. Breakfast and lunch options are Appleseed Café, Strath Corner Bakery, Bean Machine, Hammer ‘N’ Tongs, Jacks High Street Bakery, and Cart and Kettle.
Officially classified a Heritage Town, Strathalbyn has 44 buildings of interest. It’s got a uniquely European feel, similar to Hahndorf. Some of the popular activities to do include a visit to the 1800s Railway Station, the Heritage Centre, Soldier’s Memorial Garden, Mill Bridge, Argus House (home to Australia’s first rural paper), the Mill House, Grain Store, Bell’s Corner, London House, and the River Angus Walkway. Today, this town is known for its farming, vineyards, orchards, and alpacas.
A lifestyle of peace and quiet
Fill your days trying local produce and wine, perusing antique shops and markets, marvel at the heritage buildings, and relax in the open parklands on the banks of the River Angus. Make the most of the farm-to-table produce in the community, such as the award-winning Najobe. This part of the Hills also features various homesteads, cottages, and BnBs.

Enjoy the Adelaide Hills and Fleurieu Peninsula
Nearby, there’s plenty of things to do such as visit the Nurragi Conservation Reserve Walking Trail, Prospect Hill Forest, and Frank Potts Reserve. The drive from Strathalbyn to Goolwa is the perfect ‘Sunday’ road trip, peppered with cellar doors. Living in Strath really is an enviable location. There are many little secret spots to discover. If you love markets, leave your weekends free to head down to the coast to Goolwa, Port Elliot, Myponga, Willunga, and Victor Harbor. You can pick up some gems at these spots. Many of these artisan markets also feature galleries, breweries, food, and community facilities.
