Rivercrest Wall reproduces the look of flagstone, a sedimentary stone that is composed of layers of sand, clay, and organic sediments. Because of its weaker consistency, flagstone can start to show signs of degradation fairly early on. Some types of flagstone are extremely prone to cracks, flaking, staining, and discoloration. To achieve the color, shape and texture of this attractive natural stone, however, homeowners can opt for Rivercrest Wall. Rivercrest Wall offers all the visual benefits of stacked flagstone, coupled with the incredible durability of Unilock concrete wall blocks. Thanks to Reala Surface Technology, a manufacturing process exclusive to Unilock, Rivercrest Wall appears completely natural and authentic. Transform your backyard into a summer getaway with the subtle colors of Rivercrest Wall, Buff or Coastal Slate. Both colors are available in the Dayton, OH, region and can be used to accentuate smooth graphic pavers, such as Umbriano, or more textured pavers, such as Richcliff.
