Are you looking for a new retaining wall or a more reliable material to replace a failing retaining wall? Stone Strong retaining wall block is a great choice!

Why would you choose Stone Strong retaining wall block?

Aesthetics - Stone Strong blocks create a beautiful retaining wall as shown in our photo galleries.

Peace of Mind - You want something reliable and long lasting. Stone Strong blocks are BIG, engineered retaining wall blocks. The 24 square foot standard block weighs 6,000 lbs! The blocks are BIG, but when stacked they offer a face pattern that looks like smaller stacked block.

Cost - Stone Strong wall installations save labor, time, backfill and geogrid material when compared to installations of other retaining wall products. When finished wall cost is compared, Stone Strong is very competitive retaining wall solution.

Space Limitations - Stone Strong especially shines when site space and property lines limit excavation for geogrid since the Stone Strong blocks can be stacked higher than other retaining wall block materials without the use of geogrid or tiebacks.

Installation - Stone Strong retaining wall systems utilize blocks up to 24SF face area so an installer can set 24 sq. ft. of retaining wall in one block set! It takes the same amount of time to set one block, no matter the size. An installer can set more square feet of wall at a time, and the total number of blocks to set is significantly reduced.

Typical Cross Section Detail - Blocks have an automatic setback when stacking. 4” for every 3’ of vertical height. Pay close attention to the top block. The front face is angled to allow for backfill dirt, landscaping, gravel, concrete or other material to finish off the top of your wall. No special cap blocks are needed!

Fence Installation Detail - Local building code requires a fence? No problem! With the built-in void in the Stone Strong block, fence sleeves are easy to install so fence posts can be set quickly and without coring after the wall installation is complete.
