Our original, most popular unit, the Standard unit is the backbone of VERSA-LOK retaining wall systems. The unit's solid construction and unique pinning system provide an endless array of design options, hardcore durability and the fastest, easiest installation available. Not only straight retaining walls, but also curves, corners, columns, stairs and freestanding walls are possible with the Standard unit, making it a universal favorite among homeowners, contractors and landscape architects and designers alike.


A slimmed-down version of the Standard wall unit, Accent units measure 4 inches tall by 12 inches wide. They're lighter than Standard units, but engineered with the same high-strength, low-absorption concrete. Easily installed, Accent units draw minimal attention to the wall, saving the spotlight for pools, gardens, and other features of the surrounding landscape.


About half the size of the VERSA-LOK Standard wall block, Cobble units are perfect for planters, small walls and countless garden-variety projects. Smaller and conveniently lighter than its big brother Standard unit, versatile Cobble wall units retain the same top-down pinning system, saving you time and installation costs.


Create eye-catching designs by combining VERSA-LOK Standard, Cobble and Accent units to form the random-patterned Mosaic Retaining Wall System. Attractive and durable, the Mosaic system uses a four-unit panel (10" x 24")-consisting of one Standard, one Cobble and two Accent units-giving each wall an interesting and visually arresting look and feel. Although they can create seemingly complex patterns, the simple four-unit Mosaic panels are just as easy to install as our Standard, Cobble or Accent Retaining Wall Systems.


Cap units can put the finishing touch on your VERSA-LOK retaining wall. Caps can be used with all types of designs. The cap size we carry is 3"x16"x12".
