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. Plant growth also deters graffiti.
Concrete will not rot or weaken over time and no chemical preservatives are required. Blocks can be replaced if damage occurs.
3. Mortarless and interlocking systems
The units are simply stacked up without mortar to provide a cost effective, do-it-yourself system. Can be used for light revetment cladding, medium-to-heavy gravity retaining walls, heavy duty composite walls in combination with earth reinforcing grids (fabrics) or reinforced concrete infill.
4. Layout flexibility
The half moon interlock easily handles convex and concave curves, and the wall angle can vary from vertical to shallow slopes. Create steps by reversing the block.
5. Colours and textures
Choose between round, straight or rock face finish. Contact us about available colours.
6. Easy to use
The blocks are lightweight for easy delivery, handling and installation, yet heavy in mass when filled with soil, gravel, or concrete. Fence and handrail posts can be set within blocks.

This will depend on the design of your wall. We will provide you with a construction drawing once we know your requirements.
Yes. There are several images on this site to give ideas for using TERRAFORCE blocks creatively. Steps can be built by simply reversing the standard TERRAFORCE retainer blocks so that the flat area is facing forward.
They are. Generally it can be assumed that retaining walls can be built at a cost of about 70% of what a conventional retaining wall would cost.
Most definitely. The blocks are light to handle and transport, free of toxic preservatives and once completed with suitable planting, can provide food and shelter for many birds and insects.
Your TERRAFORCE wall is maintenance free. If you have made a LIVING WALL it will need the usual garden upkeep.
It is. TERRAFORCE have been manufacturing the TERRAFORCE range of retaining blocks for over 35 years. The product is now manufactured, and retaining walls constructed, in several countries on five continents.
