GeoStone 4"x18"x12"

Also referred to as the GeoStone Landscape Block or the Residential Unit, this block is perfect for everyone from the professional landscaper to the weekend wall builder.  It weighs in at only 36 lbs but don't let its size fool you.  This block has been used to build walls as tall as 23 feet that are holding up commercial driveways, buildings, and parking lots.  The GeoStone 4" block  was created with the upscale landscape market in mind.  The look of the big commercial units was unappealing to most.  Stacked stone was the only alternative at the time and a costly one at that.  GeoStone's 4" Landscape block filled the gap perfectly.  Landscapers love it for its speed in installation as well as its "softer" appearence and DIY's love its look as well as its ease of installation.

 

Today, over 75 percent of all GeoStone walls are built using the GeoStone 4" block.  Hands down, this is the best block on the market.

GeoStone 8"x18"x12"

Often referred to as the "GeoStone Standard" block or commercial unit.  This product's primary use is in large commercial wall construction.  Its size and weight tend to deter the weekend wall builders.  Some of the pictures shown to the left show walls as tall as 47 feet.  The GeoStone 8" can be used on its on or in combination with the GeoStone 4" block in either banding, patterns, or Ashlar.  The GeoStone 8" block weighs in at approximately 72 lbs.  This remains the lightest of the "full-size" commercial units.  Lighter weight in the world of concrete products typically equates to lesser cost in both actual materials and logistics.  In the commercial world every penny counts and this block is meant to save as many pennies as possible.  Click on the link below to read more about why this is the most cost effective block on the market!

Maybe you have more retaining wall questions.  That's understandable.  Here are some of the more frequent questions I get from emails. If there is something not covered here, shoot us an email.  We actually read and them and respond.  I know, crazy, right?

  1. There's no pins or lips, so how does it connect? Through the most powerful form of connection which is Rock Interlock.  By filling the cores with crushed limestone (#57 or #67) GeoStone utilizes friction to lock the units together.  Much like Velcro (on a much smaller scale of course) the connection is based on direction of applied strength.  Pulling two strips of Velcro apart, up / down, is not very difficult.  Pulling them apart, side to side, or horizontally is near impossible.  That is because there is literally thousands of connection points and if one turns loose, there is another right next to it.  This is very similar in concept to GeoStone and Rock Interlock.  The gravel has thousands of connection points in each core of each block.  If one or many of those points shift, they reform connection with the many other points within the cell. A wall's connection is meant to resist horizontal or lateral pressures exerted from behind.
  2. Do I have to use GeoGrid?  The answer to that would largely depend on the situation.  The industry standard (rule for all SRW's) is that you should put grids no less frequent than every two feet in height.  Factors like slope, soil conditions, backfill material, and surcharge (loading) can have an effect on frequency of grid placement and the length / strength of the grids.  Remember, adding a layer or two of grid is cheaper and easier than rebuilding a wall.
  3. Can I install this myself? There again, that largely depends on the situation and your skill-set.  If you are a DIY kind of person and you feel confident that this is something you would like to tackle, then by all means try it.  I would highly recommend the 4" block.  This does not mean that you should attempt to build a 20' tall wall with a pick and shovel.  Anything 4 ft and higher within most city limits is considered a structural retaining wall and requires a permit and/or an engineer stamped wall design.  I will always recommend at least talking to a professional installer or GeoStone specialist before attempting to build anything 4 ft or higher.  If in question, call us 205-678-9969
  4. Should I use the 4" or the 8" block? That one is easy.  Large commercial or anything over 16 ft tall - definitely the 8" block.  Anything else, I would use the 4" block.  The 4" builds faster, looks better, and is so much easier to work with.  It is easier to maneuver, to carry, and its flexibility is unmatched.  Not to mention, its overall look is unique and there is nothing else out there like it.  You can also combine the two to create banding or Ashlar.
  5. This is great but how can I find more in depth information about GeoStone Retaining Walls?  There is something we just came out with that is kind of an "Easter egg" in our website.  If you will notice, there are two blocks in either corner of the bottom menu.  Click the one on the left and it goes to our Online presentation or "sub-web" that we use to help train people who already know the basics of modular wall construction.  This is "next level" instructions on what makes GeoStone unique and how to do certain procedures only the professional installers know.  Good luck and as always, if you have any questions, please call us at:  205-678-9969
