Dealing with a property on a slope AND keeping it attractive!
Don’t let the steep slope in your backyard get in the way of your landscaping dreams. Conquer a problem slope by installing a concrete-block retaining wall — you’ll add space, structure, and value to your property.
As did this homeowner in Winterstrand, Eastern Cape, when face with a plot on a slope. He chose the Terrafroce V8 blocks – currently only available by Terraforce East Cape, East London – because he loved their clean finish and because using a hollow core, interlocking retaining block, he was also still able to plant the finished wall with waterwise succulents.
To achieve the final look and feel, the blocks had to be cut during installation to achieve a stretch bond, and extra drainage and waterproofing needed to be provided at the wall section bordering against the building. A wide staircase was added to the wall design to provide comfortable access to the lower level of the home. Wall installation done by Terraforce Recommended Contractor H2K Group Pty Ltd, East London, Eastern Cape.
The client added his own landscaping with gravel and rock riprap, succulent plants and grasses, and can now watch his investment grow with time.
