The VERDURA retaining wall system was created with the do-it-yourselfer in mind. VERDURA offers the opportunity to create "living walls"; providing the strength and function of a standard retaining wall plus the added ability to sustain live plantings. A strong lip on the block interlocks the units, allowing for compaction right behind the blocks, and holding the soil inside the block. Installation is quick and easy. VERDURA allows the wall to be built as you backfill. The blocks are typically spaced apart to allow for planting. VERDURA can be used for a wide variety of applications, i.e. edging, tree rings, planter beds, backyard walls, etc.
