Vegetated retaining walls are a green alternative to block and concrete retaining walls. Offering higher aesthetic appeal and a natural look, Filtrexx® Vegetated Walls are a mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) system that is reinforced with vegetation and geogrid support. These systems are ideal for real estate and public parks and can restore native wildlife habitat to hardscapes and developed areas.
In the past, challenges in establishing vegetation have led to minimal use of greenwall systems. Vegetated retaining walls rely on GrowingMedia™ to provide a fertile growing medium that encourages vegetation establishment and successfully assists in anchoring roots of the vegetation to the wall and the site substrate. Further, the vegetated fascia drastically reduces or eliminates the build up of hydrostatic pressure behind the wall face, where failures often happen in hard wall systems.
