A slimmed-down version of the Standard wall unit, Accent units measure 4 inches tall by 12 inches wide. They're lighter than Standard units, but engineered with the same high-strength, low-absorption concrete. Easily installed, Accent units draw minimal attention to the wall, saving the spotlight for pools, gardens, and other features of the surrounding landscape.
