Retaining Wall Patterns

The AB Collection, AB Aztec Collection and AB Europa Collections can be used to create a variety of pre-set and random patterns. A pre-set pattern is repeated every two or three courses of block. A single course consists of a full size block, approximately 8 in. (200 mm) high.

Note: Walls with curves should always use the 2 course pattern to minimize cutting and fitting. For walls requiring geogrid use the 2 course pattern to allow for proper geogrid placement.

Retaining Wall Pattern

Note: A base course of full size blocks (AB Classic or AB Dover) needs to be included. For each 10 ft. (3.0 m) of wall length you will need 7 full size blocks. For 10 ft. (3.0 m) of wall length for AB Capstones, you will need 7 AB Caps.
