ALPENSTEIN is a new
and truly 'green' retaining wall alternative. Manufactured in
a smooth or split-face design, these stones are ideally suited
for building terraced, plantable landscapes.
The one-piece, modular units are easy to install and are excellent
in either residential or commercial settings. A mini unit is
also available for the do-it-yourself market. As a retaining
wall system, ALPENSTEIN® does not
just hold the earth back but is embedded right into it. With
its flexible design, the blocks can easily be placed to create
a straight or curved wall, and after soil and plants have been
introduced between the units, greenery is able to take over the
wall naturally. ALPENSTEIN® is a building
block of landscape architecture that adapts to the landscape.
ALPENSTEIN® can be used
in many areas of garden and landscape design as a modular system
that enhances the ecology and economy of slope installation.
These smooth stones anchor the slope or embankment and can be
installed at various angles. Not just a straight wall system,
the ALPENSTEIN® walls can be constructed
on a convex or concave curve. These stable blocks create a large,
continuous space for plants to flourish and ensures a sufficient
supply of humidity for strong, healthy growth. The root systems
of the plants aid in wall stability and the plants themselves
offer an attractive and ecological alternative to the standard
massive retaining wall. For a stable, terraced landscape use
ALPENSTEIN® as a 'green' alternative.
