Why not just use railway sleepers, stone or boards?

  • Sleepers need a foundation or footing to sit on, concrete is messy, hard work and expensive. They are also incredibly heavy and difficult to work with, and often expensive to buy. Its also difficult t cut them to your exact angles or sizes without heavy landscaping machinery.
  • Stone or blockwork is expensive and requires mortar and foundations, as well as the skills to build with it successfully. WoodBlocX is also comparably cheaper than bricks.

WoodBlocX Retaining walls are:

DURABLE

All the wooden components are made from the highest-quality timber – we do not use the heart of the tree, which is weaker. The wood is then pressure-treated and because WoodBlocX are pre-drilled, the treatment penetrates to almost 100% of the wood. We warranty any individual component for 15 years, but they can be expected to last even longer.

STRONG

WoodBlocX has more strength than masonry in some situations because it can withstand tension forces as well as compression. It will not crack with ground movement or frost. WoodBlocX is put together with many joints and each dowel can withstand 0.9 tonnes of sheer force. The structure forms a single solid unit that will not easily distort like many other flimsy timber products on the market.

SIMPLE

No technical skills are needed to build a WoodBlocX structure. We will supply you with specific instructions for your build, and general assembly instructions. There’s also a video to help you. The BlocX go together quickly and easily, with no need for power tools or specialist equipment.

EASY

WoodBlocX are so light even a child could help with construction. There is no heavy lifting involved in a WoodBlocX build, and all the parts fit into an average-sized car. There’s also no need for foundations or cement, and they can be sited on any surface – soil, grass, tarmac, concrete, paving – including slopes.

ATTRACTIVE

The rough-sawn wood is attractive in itself, and needs no varnishing. It will naturally fade to a grey over the years. If you want to, you could also paint them. Any water-based exterior paint will do it, so choose a colour you like which will fit in with the rest of your garden.

SUSTAINABLE AND ORGANIC

We source the timber from sustainably-managed forests, and our treatment process involves no chemicals that might leach from the wood, unlike the heavily treated sleepers. The dowels are all made from recycled plastic too, and we continue to work hard to reduce our carbon footprint in everything that we do.

The unique WoodBlocX system means that it can be adapted to almost any garden situation, and any size or design that is needed. There are hundreds of pre-designed beds, planters, ponds and more, but we can also help you to design whatever it is that you need, so that it fits perfectly into your space.

Once the design is finalised, delivery only takes 3-4 days, and the WoodBlocX are so simple to construct, your garden could be transformed by the end of the weekend!

5 Reasons why WoodBlocX retaining walls are the number 1 choice for your garden

DURABILITY

Nothing lasts as long as stone, but we can't all have the expertise or money to build beautiful stone walls. WoodBlocX provides a simple alternative that will last much longer than made-up wooden structures. Because it is pre-drilled the pressure treatment penetrates almost 100% of the sapwood and it can be expected to last 20 years or more.

STRENGTH

WoodBlocX has more strength than masonry in some situations because it can withstand tension forces as well as compression. It will not crack with ground movement or frost. WoodBlocX is put together with many joints (each dowel withstands 0.9 tonnes shear force) and forms a rigid structure that will not easily distort like other timber products.

EASE OF USE

Here WoodBlocX really comes into its own! It is light and easy to carry and all the parts fit into an average car. To put it up you need no elaborate foundations, no cement mixer or water, and only a hammer and some common household tools. It is quick! No waiting for cement to dry.

APPEARANCE

WoodBlocX has a really neat attractive appearance. If desired it can be painted with exterior wood paints or just left with its natural colour which will last for several years. Because it retains its shape WoodBlocX will generally look much neater than assembled-on-site wooden products.

COST

Naturally stone is expensive to buy and to build. WoodBlocX is comparable to brick, and less expensive if you do it yourself. Other wood products that are cheaper to buy are not so durable or attractive and are generally much harder to put up.
