Terraforce pioneered the hollow, reversible interlocking concrete block that is unmatched in its versatility, both in application and elevation. Suitable for commercial and residential landscape retaining walls, small or large.

The wide range of plantable retaining wall blocks is tailored to create environmentally friendly domestic or industrial installations and to support sustainable development in soil stabilisation. Walls can range from light gravity retaining walls to geogrid reinforced earth-retaining or heavy gravity, double skin walls.

Most Terraforce Licensees use recycled concrete and clay bricks in the manufacture of Terraforce products. Please note: Terraforce suppliers stock their own selection/sizes of Terraforce concrete retaining wall blocks, this means the full range of products IS NOT sold at every outlet.
