  • We recommend 2 (25cm) or 3 (35cm) blocx high for standard raised vegetable beds, this gives you plenty height for most vegetables to grow.

  • This calculator is based on our standard construction method, which we recommend, for strength.

  • If you would like us to get closer to specific sizes we will have to use a combination of smaller BlocX, this will mean the structure will have stightly less rigidilty as a standard size design.

Product is fantastic but the delivery service was poor. Dumping a heavy pallet on the pavement is not an acceptable fulfillment solution. When ordering on line one is only told that this might occur AFTER one has placed one's order. As it happens we had builders in the house at the time who offered... Read More.

The simple, quick and easy way to landscape your garden


If you are thinking about building a retaining wall in garden. WoodBlocX system could be the solution you have been looking for. Like giant kids building blocks our system is easy, quick and fun to build with.

Free Wall or Project Design Service

WoodBlocX walls and steps can be designed by our team to fit your exact space and needs. We have a team of designers waiting for your pictures and sizes. With your guidance, they will then put together a design for you based on years of garden design experience.

Our team can help you design any shape or size structure that you feel would fit your space and needs best. With WoodBlocX you are not limited to straight walls as we can design curves, circles or ovals of nearly any radius to suit your garden.

Once a retaining wall design has been agreed we will do the rest for you. We will work out the components then put together a full layer by layer instruction pack for your build. The components will be delivered to your location. We try and make every step along the way as easy as possible.

All that's left to do then is get a level surface and the fun part of knocking the BlocX together.

Why not just use railway sleepers, stone or boards?


    1. - Sleepers need a foundation or footing to sit on, concrete is messy, hard work and expensive. 

    1. - 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.

    1. - 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.

RETAINING WALL GALLERY

WoodBlocX Retaining walls are:

DURABLE

All wooden components are made from high-quality timber. We do not use the heart of the tree, which is weaker. The wood is pressure-treated and because WoodBlocX are pre-drilled, the treatment penetrates almost 100% of the wood. WoodBlocX will last at least 15 years if installed using our guidelines, but they are 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.

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.

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.

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.

Free Garden Design Service

A new garden design – or a new determination to transform the garden – can be a daunting prospect. Before you start, spend some time thinking about exactly what you want the garden for. Do you want purely ornamental planting, or productive areas as well? How much, if any, lawn do you want – do you need to supply a sports pitch or play area for the children? What about seating and entertaining areas and storage (where’s the lawnmower going to live?)? Then assess what you want against how much time you have to look after it, amend your plans as necessary, then it’s time to design your garden.
