The Perfect Blend of Performance and Style

Classic, comfortable and always reliable. The AB Collection is our most popular retaining wall collection. The AB Collection of products has been a favorite of wall builders and homeowners for years. Whether you are building a simple raised garden or tackling a major hillside, the AB Collection will provide just what you need. Enjoy the natural beauty of the AB Collection - a classic, cut stone look that will retain the soil and define your landscape with style.


The AB Collection is easy to install. These blocks dry-stack without mortar or footings. The hollow core feature makes them easier to handle and promotes good drainage behind the wall. The raised lip and notch lock each block in place and creates a natural setback. Use one sized block or mix the different block sizes together in the wall to capture the look of hand laid stone. The AB Collection is right at home in residential settings where retaining walls 6’ and under are typically called for, and up to the task on larger retaining walls 6’ and over.
