This homeowner in Winterstrand, Eastern Cape, when face with a plot on a slope. He chose the Terrafroce V8 blocks – currently only available by Terraforce East Cape, East London – because he loved their clean finish and because using a hollow core, interlocking retaining block, he was also still able to plant the finished wall with water-wise succulents.
To achieve the final look and feel. The blocks had to be cut during installation to achieve a stretch bond. Extra drainage and waterproofing also needed to be provided at the wall section bordering against the building. A wide staircase was added to the wall design to provide comfortable access to the lower level of the home. Wall installation is done by Terraforce Recommended Contractor H2K Group Pty Ltd, East London, Eastern Cape.
The client added his own landscaping with gravel and rock riprap, succulent plants and grasses, and can now watch his investment grow with time.
