Redi-Rock InstallationLike Playing With Legos for Giants
Redi-Rock requires fewer laborers than most other retaining wall systems. In fact a crew of 2-3 including the equipment operator will get the job done in an efficient manner saving time and money.
Setting the Redi-Rock blocks is simple and fast due to the self-aligning knob and groove system as well as a horizontal sight line on every block.
- Level and compact a solid base for the bottom of blocks to rest upon. (It may be necessary to place 6-8” of compacted gravel to create this base. In some cases, a poured concrete footer would be a better foundation.)
- When placing the first row of blocks, it is important to make sure that the blocks are level. Bottom blocks should be used for the first row to create stability, unless only one row is being placed.
- Middle blocks can then be placed over the bottom row such that they interlock with the two bottom blocks. As the system continues, the entire wall will be interlocked.
- The retaining wall can be tied back into the backfill material with occasional fabric layers.
- Top blocks are then used to create a top row which is recessed to allow for topsoil or stone placement.
- Backfill should be of #57 stone and fabric barrier.
- Redi-Rock offers a dependable fiberglass geo-connector for walls taller than 13’6”.
