  1. Most Terraforce Licensees use recycled concrete and clay bricks in the manufacture of Terraforce products.

  2. Please note: Suppliers stock their own selection/sizes of Terraforce products, this means the full range of products IS NOT sold at every outlet.

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 walls to geogrid reinforced earth-retaining or heavy gravity, double skin walls.
