The living retaining wall system
WHAT IS TERRAFORCE?
The Terraforce® retaining wall system is brought to you through our partnership with South African based company, Terraforce®. The unique blocks were pioneered in 1984 and represent one of the most energy efficient segmental retaining wall systems.
The Terraforce® block system combines more advantages than any of the other systems: relatively light weight for transport, interlocking on both planes (horizontally and vertically), is reversible to display a smooth round-face or a split straight-face, has a closed vertical surface structure for proper compaction of back fill and prevention of back fill erosion, the wall angle can vary to suit site conditions and it can be filled with soil, gravel or concrete as designed by the engineer.
The unique hollow-core design means that they require less concrete to do the job when compared to solid block systems and allows water to drain back into the ground. The blocks are also plantable, and if irrigation and maintenance are set up properly, a Terraforce® wall can be completely covered in vegetation.

THE 4x4 MULTI STEP BLOCK
The perfect complement to Terraforce retaining walls, the Multi 4×4 Step block is a light, dry-stack concrete unit, generally used for constructing low terrace walls, stairs and seating arrangements. Aimed at providing efficient and economical steps in conjunction with the original retaining blocks of similar design, they have become very popular not only for stairway access, but also to provide comfortable, practical stair and seating arrangements at leisure amenities and school sports facilities.
The 4×4 Multi Step block has a unique design that allows you to simply stack up the units without mortar since the corner interlock gently handles convex and concave curves. The wall angle can vary from vertical to shallow slopes, and steps can be created by turning the block on its side. It can also be rotated for four different elevation choices, and the design allows you to make plants part of your wall.
