The Secret to Hardscape Innovation? (It's in the pin)

When you shape a landscape, you don't want your design options to be limited. Solid VERSA-LOK retaining wall units deliver nearly unlimited options. They readily accommodate designs that include straight and curved retaining and freestanding walls, walls with corners (of almost any angle), tall walls, tiers, stairs, seating, columns and more.

Multistack segmental retaining wall units where geogrid options are limited

In terms of cost, aesthetics and design flexibility, VERSA-LOK segmental retaining wall units could be your most effective solution the next time you find yourself in a tight spot.

Segmental retaining walls (SRWs) taller than 4 feet typically require soil reinforcement. The most cost-effective way to retain soil in these situations is with a geogrid-reinforced retaining wall—where grid is an option.
