11/2021 – Terraforce, your growing force!

Four years later, the Terraforce round face finish walls at the new Harbour Bay Mall in Simons Town, South Africa, are looking fantastic! Expertly installed by Terraforce Recommended Contractor Dassenberg Retaining Systems using the specified Terraforce L11 block these earth retaining walls are now draped by abundant creepers of many shades of green, softening and greening them very effectively.

Water-wise landscaping

Growing from the top down we see Aptenia and Carpobrotu and growing up from the bottom up along the walls are Ficus Pumila, with Fynbos shrubs lining the contours. This is a wonderful combination for efficiently greening retaining walls with water-wise plants.

A job well done by Green Cube Landscaping, focussing on indigenous vegetation of the area.

Water-wise vegetation has filled in very well

Parking area is greened for maximum effect
