With the award-winning Rivercrest Wall system, you get the character and flexibility of natural stone with the durability, affordability and ease of installation of manufactured concrete. The clever design and 4 - stone bundle packaging gives you the components to build straight or curved walls in a variety of radius dimensions, with almost no cutting required. Pillars can be built in a flash using the Rivercrest Rapid Pillar system and fire pits can be built in an hour when using the Rivercrest Fire Pit Kit. Build seat walls, water features, outdoor kitchens or, when combined with geogrid, retaining walls up to 6ft (1.8m).
Standard Base – Min. 6” – 8” of ¾” Crusher Run gravel (any road base standard in accordance with ASTM-D2940) compacted to 98% Standard Proctor Density (SPD).
Levelling – Leveling Rivercrest fire pit kits directly on top of gravel is tedious and generally does not yield the best results. U-Grip™ Base units or universal base pads are recommended under all Unilock walls for improved accuracy and makes for a speedier installation. Additional benefits include long term structural integrity and an overall better appearance. Poured concrete leveling pads, reinforced with rebar, are also a great way to accomplish leveling, especially for larger installations. You must ensure that the concrete is poured and finished perfectly in order to achieve a good visual appearance.
Connection – Fire pit wall units must be glued using an appropriate high heat concrete adhesive for connection between units. Always read adhesive manufacturers’ directions prior to gluing.
Handling – Handle wall units with care when installing. Bumping units into one another may chip the face.
Coping – No coping is required for the Rivercrest fire pit.

A meticulously hand-rendered landscape design plan is incomparable to anything else. The ability to draw every detail, from the smallest plant to the largest water feature, is a skill that creates functional works of art that, up until recently, drew customers. Today, however, landscape design has joined the rest of the design world: technology is king. As competition in the landscape industry becomes fiercer, owners are looking for anything that can help set them apart. 3D design is a great opportunity to do just that.
Modern style is taking over the landscape design industry. Homeowners are asking about bringing clean edges and a simplified look to their outdoor living spaces, and manufacturers are responding with a myriad of related cutting-edge products. The missing piece could be landscape designers and installers if they’re not prepared to fulfill homeowners’ requests for modern designs.
