Ecology Blocks are large concrete blocks, manufactured from left-over or unused concrete. Concrete, that in years gone-by would have been dumped and wasted or taken away to a land fill site, is saved and converted into a recycled construction product, hence the phrase Ecology Block. The blocks are cast into either a half block or a complete block and use just about a half or a full yard of concrete (blank). The dimensions for these blocks are 2’ X 2’ X 3’ for a half block and 2’ X 2’ X 6’ for a complete block. Each block is cast with a 3” radius tongue and groove, for interlocking security, in stacking applications. The full blocks weigh approximately 3850 pounds and the half blocks are 1900 pounds.

Seattle Rockeries builds and installs retaining walls professionally, for properties in Washington State. Retaining walls are commonly used on sloped landscapes to contain soil and help with water drainage during the rainy season.
We design and implement retaining walls for all landscape environments and soil conditions including soil, sand, clay and everything in between. We plan our retaining walls keeping slope's angles in mind and accommodating for proper weight distribution above and below the retaining wall.
Retaining walls are a critical part of structural landscaping and create a foundation for sloped areas and multiple levels of outdoor areas.
