Our Universal Coping and Base Pad are an excellent complement to wall projects. Start with the Base Pad, installed underneath your wall project to provide a consistently level surface on which to build. Then, top off your project with coping made using Enduracolor manufacturing technology, for a refined surface and long-lasting color
UNIVERSAL / U-GRIP BASE UNIT
The base units are designed to provide the installer a flat surface on the retaining wall base gravel to facilitate quick and easy installation of any retaining wall type. These units also help bridge smaller retaining wall units to prevent differential settlement between units. The multiple lines embossed into the surface provide an alignment guide when placing retaining wall units.
Handling and Installation –
The top of the unit should be located below grade in the base trench so that a minimum 6” of the first row of block sits below grade as well.
Units can be individually levelled or they can be placed on a screeded bed of stone chip for rapid installation. Although rectangular in shape, they can be installed in a “sailor” pattern or a “soldier” pattern depending on the wall type and/or the desired appearance.
Always sweep the surface clean prior to placing the first row of retaining wall units.

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.
