Ground to vertical landscaping
Wakefield-based Grass Concrete is said to be best-known for the grass paving brand Grasscrete, but it reportedly also has a strong line-up of vertical landscaping products, the Betoconcept range.
The range is said to meet growing demand for both retaining walls that combine reduced noise levels with attractive vertical landscapes, offering a variety of planting options as an alternative to what would otherwise be ‘dull and uninspiring’ structures.
Retaining walls on highways or the simplest garden or boundary walls now feature: planting, colour, shape or textured finish. The Betoconcept range brings different shapes and styles to accommodate planting on high or low walls with Betoatlas, Betoflor, Betotitan, Leromur, Betojar, Betoplus and Betonap products.
With individual interlocking blocks and dry-build interconnectivity, the range is said to offer the ability to free-form wall layouts in single or terraced wall format. These interlocking units enable what is described as a ‘quick and easy construction process’ and can cope with complex curves, ground embankments and weight surcharges with various wall heights.
Dry-built blocks interlock to form the required face angle and provide adequate soil pockets for all types of plants, shrubs and climbers. Good drainage and water capture with the stepped bank reportedly helps keep landscape maintenance to a minimum. The finish offers a choice of plan table or stone finished faces, together with a range of colours.

According to the company, using the depth for landscaping means significant growth can benefit both sound suppression and help get quick landscaping results across a wide walled area.
