1. You can create a Living wall
The unique hollow-core design allows you to make plants a part of your wall and allows water to drain back into the ground. Use low-water-use plants to create a landscape that’s sustainable.
Concrete will not rot or weaken over time.
3. Mortarless and interlocking systems
The blocks are simply dry stacked, doing away with the need for mortar, providing a cost effective, quick and simple to build, retaining wall.
4. Layout flexibility
The half moon shape of the interlocking ends of the blocks easily handles convex and concave curves. The wall profile can vary from near vertical for slopes up to 45 degrees.
5. Colours and textures
The blocks are reversible with a smooth rounded face on one side with a flat rock face finish on the opposite side. The block is available in grey and buff colour.
6. Easy to use
The blocks are lightweight, 20 kg, for easy delivery, handling and installation.
