Retaining Walls


The Belgard Vertica® is the ideal choice for large-scale retaining walls that require strength, durability, and a clean look in a near-vertical appearance. Applications include terraced walls, site development, bridges, multi-family developments, DOT roadways, water channels, pools, extreme loading, and more. Textured units are available in straight or beveled face.

Features & Benefits

  • Pinless, patented locator lug gives quick, uniform setback for reduced labor costs
  • Used in commercial site development or anywhere space is at a premium
  • Can be used to build gravity walls up to 3′ 4″high*, including the buried course
  • Taller walls can be built using geosynthetic reinforcement when designed by a qualified engineer
  • Minimum outside radius, measured on the top course to the front of the units: 5 feet
  • Minimum inside radius, measured on the base course to the front of the units: 7 feet
  • Setback/System Batter: 9/32″/2° or 9/16″/4°
