Choosing the Look of Your Retaining Wall
One of the toughest choices is deciding which type of wall to use. Many homes aren’t strictly representative of one architectural style. Many contemporary homes blend styles, which can make the choice even more challenging. Ultimately your wall choice comes down to personal preference, as today’s design aesthetic isn’t tied down to sticking with one particular style. Let’s begin by exploring textures as a starting point.
1. Brussels Dimensional System
The Brussels Dimensional System from Unilock features an antiqued patina reminiscent of ancient Mediterranean walls. Available in Almond Grove, Coffee Creek, Limestone, New York Blend, Sierra, and Sandstone), its smaller dimensions make it the perfect choice for curved walls and fire pits.
2. Concord Wall
Unilock Concord Wall (in Almond Grove, Granite, and Sierra) is the ideal choice for taller walls designed with function in mind. This wall system features a built-in setback that ensures the correct slope for unparalleled strength and structural integrity, in a very attractive weather-worn package.

4. Rivercrest Wall
