There are several methods for building a retaining wall with steps. This article will discuss two of these methods: the Heritage Block system and the solid pinned blocks. The Heritage Block system is an ideal choice for retaining walls because it allows you to construct a retaining wall with steps without having to use heavy tools or hammers. In addition to the Heritage Block system, we’ll also cover how to build a freestanding wall and use a retaining wall block for the steps.
VERSA-LOK’s solid, pinned blocks
VERSA-LOK’s solid-pinned block retaining wall system offers the versatility of one-by-one segmental walls, which are built with durable, oversized units. The units are stacked dry and interlocked with pins, eliminating the need for frost footings and creating virtually maintenance-free walls. In addition, VERSA-LOK’s wall systems feature endless design possibilities and are easy to install. VERSA-LOK solid units also allow for complex shapes and designs, including curves, columns, freestanding walls, and stairs.
VERSA-LOK’s solid-pinned block system for retaining walls has three standard sizes for your retaining wall needs. The A and B blocks are 3-5/8″ tall and 14″ wide at the face and are typically used for walls with a significant amount of curvature. Alternatively, you can use a combination of the A and B blocks for a straight wall. Depending on your preferences, you can also use a mix of both A and B block sizes.
Heritage Block system
The Heritage Block system for building retaining walls is unique among other wall systems because it is made from five different shaped components and a single hollow core for interlocking. The system also eliminates the need for special pieces, setbacks, or batter. Once a proper base is prepared, the blocks can be laid one at a time. The blocks are available as pallets, or by each type of block.
The Heritage Block retaining wall block system is an easy and convenient way to create a retaining structure. Its unique design and six different components make it easy to build a retaining wall, a staircase, columns, and even a fire pit. In fact, the Heritage Block system is designed for so many applications that you don’t need to purchase special blocks or pieces. You can even seamlessly integrate stairs, columns, and fire pits into your retaining wall project.
VERSA-LOK’s freestanding wall blocks
If you’re looking for a retaining wall solution that’s both durable and attractive, VERSA-LOK’s free-standing wall blocks will meet your needs. These blocks offer a range of unique shapes and colors and are available in two different pinning systems: rear-lip and pinned. The bricks themselves are durable and easy to install. For the ultimate in style and function, consider incorporating a planter or other decorative feature into your retaining wall project.
