Concrete masonry, Proto-II™ Wall Systems, pavers, and segmental retaining walls are unitized materials that do not require large equipment for placement, nor large staging areas.
Proto-II™ utilizes optimized footings that displace much less soil than conventional masonry fence and retaining walls.
Segmental retaining walls respect the natural contours of the site, and do not require large footings and the associated soil displacement.
