Textured Concrete Blocks Blend Into Mountainside Scenery
MagnumStone’s versatile blocks, swift installation process and textured aesthetic were equally important for this project near Sedalia, CO, USA. The homeowners wanted a natural stone look for their curved residential retaining wall to match the scenic Rocky Mountain landscape. To their delight, nearby MagnumStone producer SEMA Precast offers the textured aesthetic retaining wall system that blends perfectly with Colorado’s rugged surroundings.
Strength of Gravity Retaining Wall Extenders
The blocks’ versatility helped overcome challenging excavation of rocky terrain to save major time and labor costs. Excavation was minimized using MagnumStone’s gravity extender units for reinforcement rather than the excessive space that geogrid wall designs require.
Efficient Shipping and Easy Installations
The tapered design accommodates base elevation changes from 3 ft. (0.91 m.) tall to a maximum height of 9 ft. (2.74 m.) tall in the center. The palletized delivery of these 8 sq. ft. hollow core blocks made unloads and installation quick and easy for the project contractor Integrated Wall Solutions. Stain was locally sourced and applied in under an hour to match the forested property.
