THE GREEN WALL

IL MURO VERDE

The retaining wall described and illustrated is constituted of prefabricated hollow, rectangular, reinforced concrete blocks, with a specially treated external face for aesthetic effect. Supported on a reinforced concrete footing with a retention kerb, the bottom row of blocks is regularly spaced so that in subsequent rows each block rests on two blocks of the row below. Thus constructed, the wall is ideal for the planting of vegetation. Details are given of the design and dimensions of the blocks.
