Product Features ↴

Easy Installation

The AB Europa blocks are easy to install. They dry-stack without mortar or footings. Just stack, fill, compact and go! The hollow core feature makes them easier to handle and promotes good drainage behind the wall. The raised lip and notch lock each block in place and creates a built-in setback. Use one sized block or mix the different block sizes together in the wall to capture the look of hand laid stone. The AB Europa Collection is right at home in residential settings where retaining walls 6’ and under are typically called for, and up to the task on larger retaining walls 6’ and over.
