Retaining walls need to be properly engineered and constructed to withstand Wisconsin’s weather cycles. Each wall we build exceeds engineering standards for your unique soil and load type. Retaining walls also have an aesthetic function which is why we have experience with nearly every style of block and many natural materials. Call Bobs Grading today for help with your next retaining wall project.
VERSA-LOK segmental retaining walls are made from high-strength concrete units, dry-stacked, interlocked with pins, and set on granular leveling pads. These mortarless walls do not need frost footings. And when stabilized with geogrid soil reinforcement, VERSA-LOK walls can be built 50 feet tall and even higher. From intricate landscaping features to tall, commercial walls, VERSA-LOK delivers your best value in segmental retaining wall solutions.
VERSA-LOK’s unique hole-to-slot pinning system provides your walls with an automatic setback, improving stability and making installation a snap. Durable, solid VERSA-LOK units have no voids to fill and can be modified easily on-site to create a variety of special landscaping features.
The Allan Block Collections of retaining wall products give you a choice of styles to meet your site and design requirements. All the collections can build the basic gravity wall system for smaller wall projects. Using geogrid to reinforce the retaining wall allows taller projects to be built.
The AB Collection is easy to install. These blocks dry-stack without mortar or footings. The hollow core feature makes them easier to handle and promotes good drainage behind the wall. The raised lip and notch lock each block in place and creates a natural setback. Use one sized block or mix the different block sizes together in the wall to capture the look of hand laid stone. The AB Collection is right at home in residential settings where retaining walls 6’ and under are typically called for, and up to the task on larger retaining walls 6’ and over.
