Adbri Masonry announced today the launch of its newest vertical retaining wall system, the modern Versastone®. The new retaining wall system comes complete with standard blocks, corners and caps; and utilises Adbri’s unique dry stack system. This system utilises self-locking lugs, which allows each block to neatly lock into the next without the need for adhesives or mortar.

“We are very excited about the launch of the new Versastone® retaining wall system,” said Adbri Masonry Marketing Manager Karl Wood. “The new Versastone® system combines the best aspects of two leading products. It has a similar smooth finish as our in demand Euro® Stone paver series, while incorporating the innovative self-locking lug design of our Versawall® product line. The new Versastone® system is also lighter than others on the market; making it an easy product for homeowners to use themselves in their outdoor projects.”

The Versastone® retaining wall system has a premium shot blast texture and is available in four natural colours; Oatmeal, Steel, Ivory and Charcoal. “Our Oatmeal and Charcoal colours are ever popular, Steel provides a halfway point between the two, and Ivory can act as a brilliant contrast colour tone. These cool toned colours were specially chosen to provide homeowners with the opportunity of incorporating a modern and more industrial-styled aesthetic into their outdoor space.” said Wood.

“Looking ahead to the upcoming summer, Versastone® is a great retaining wall system to use around the pool area.” said Wood. “As a pure vertical retaining wall solution, it will allow homeowners to maximise and utilise that difficult circumference of space available around your pool.

Tips from Adbri Masonry and celebrity landscaper Jason Hodges on transforming your outdoor pool area:

Consider your background greenery
“One of the benefits of retaining wall systems around pool areas is that they allow you to use premium soils and potting mixes, as opposed to using whatever soil is available in the ground; and are raised, protecting whatever you plant from most pool water.” said Adbri Masonry ambassador and expert landscaper Jason Hodges. “This gives you a great opportunity to be adventurous with your background flowering plants and greenery.”

Don’t just think straight lines
“Be innovative with your space! You don’t just have to have boxy straight lines. Retaining wall blocks can create curved, slow waves or even full circles! There is always a shape and style to compliment every space. Think outside the box.“ said Hodges
Transform forgotten corners and perimiters
”Retaining walls are fantastic in letting you transform useless and previously inaccessible parts of your garden.” suggested Jason. “With the right flowering plant or palm tree, that ugly corner could be a brilliant focal point.” Build furniture into your outdoor and pool space “Maximise the use of your retaining wall and have it double as an easy poolside bench seat. Versastone® blocks are perfect for this application and are available in specially designed corner units making your job even easier!”
