Building Block

Block by block.

Yes, you could design an entire building with these concrete blocks!

However, we really like these due to the ease of installation and how effective they are in blending into most landscapes. Building blocks have been used for many landscaping structures, including the construction of raised planter boxes, columns, free-standing walls, retaining walls and a variety of other garden structures.

Available in split-face and plain surfaces.
