The Terraforce round face block wall at the Harbour Bay Mall in Simons Town, South Africa; is four years old and looks fantastic!
Expertly installed by Terraforce Recommended Contractor Dassenberg Retaining Systems using the specified Terraforce L11 block these earth retaining walls are now draped by abundant creepers of many shades of green, softening and greening them very effectively.
Growing from the top down we see Aptenia and Carpobrotu and growing up from the bottom up along the walls are Ficus Pumila, with Fynbos shrubs lining the contours. This is a wonderful combination for efficiently greening retaining walls with water-wise plants.
A job well done by Green Cube Landscaping, focusing on indigenous vegetation of the area.
