Segmental Retaining Wall Stone Steps & Landings

Many of our customers have used E. P. Henry concrete wall stones, but we also can use Techo-Bloc, Cambridge, Belgard, Anchor, Hanover, Rinox, CST or any other brand of wall stones. Installation is the same for all of the different brands.  E. P. Henry Stone Wall Select (or Diamond Pro which is the same size) can be used to make steps with risers up to 8-inches high, that look very nice with E. P. Henry interlocking concrete pavers. Because of its size and weight I believe Stone Wall Select or Diamond Pro are the best choice on this page. E. P. Henry Terrace wall stone can be used for steps with riser up to 6-inches high. E. P. Henry Coventry wall stone can be used for steps with various riser heights. Steps are constructed on a base of compacted crushed stone, but do not require a concrete foundation so they are more economical than masonry (brick or flagstone) steps. Treads for steps can be constructed with Bluestone, Flagstone, or man-made caps or bullnose pavers of various colors.
All steps shown were constructed by Robert J. Kleinberg Landscape Design and Construction using E P Henry Wall Stones.
