What is the best walling product to complement paving?

Tobermore detail the type of retaining wall that would best complement Bracken Tegula Block paving on a property on a sloping site

Matching the colour of the retaining wall with the chosen paving is a good option. Tobermore Secura blocks come in three attractive blended colours including Bracken – along with Heather and Slate.

Tobermore recommends a purpose designed block system for the retaining wall. Unsightly weeds and debris can build up in open-faced systems like gabions or timber crib, and this is not desirable in applications such as housing developments or higher prestige urban developments.

Secura Lite blocks are best suited for small retaining walls on sloping sites where the gradient limits the land use. The walls retain soil, allowing level areas to be created, which can be used for other purposes. Retaining walls can also be terraced, making them a decorative landscaping feature.

Secura segmental retaining walls are constructed using a mortar-free process that requires no skilled labour. They are quicker and easier to install compared with concrete block walls and shuttered concrete walls, saving time and money during construction. There is no mortar drying time to delay installation, meaning that constant progress can be achieved.
