Have a Seat. On Us.

Design beautiful, practical and affordable outdoor seating with VERSA-LOK  retaining wall units.

The natural appearance and durability that VERSA-LOK retaining wall units bring to outdoor spaces make them the ideal construction material for everything from amphitheaters to zoos.  Unlike cast-in-place retaining walls, which require deep footings, VERSA-LOK walls require no footings below frost, substantially reducing project costs.

Tall Retaining Wall? VERSA-LOK = Options!

With proper soil reinforcement and engineering, retaining walls can be as tall as you need. Did you know VERSA-LOK walls have been built to 50 feet and taller with a variety of soil reinforcement technologies?

VERSA-LOK Wall Units are a Beautiful Barrier Option

A tactic often overlooked in hardscape design is the use of back-to-back VERSA-LOK walls as barriers at the tops of retaining walls.

Using back-to-back VERSA-LOK walls at the tops of retaining walls preserves a consistent appearance throughout a project, in terms of color, texture, and setback.

Signs for the Times

Create eye-catching supports for kiosk, backlit, or LED signs with VERSA-LOK retaining wall units.

A channel-lettered logo or other component looks great anchored against a weathered or standard texture VERSA-LOK wall. You can also create stunning VERSA-LOK columns as facing around metal supports for commercial signs.
