Along with the Bella Vista line of retaining walls and landscape walls, RCP Block & Brick is also a certified manufacturer of the Keystone Retaining Wall block units. Manufactured in San Diego, CA on 6 Columbia block machines, RCP Block & Brick prides itself on the quality and consistency of its retaining wall and landscape wall block.

Retaining Wall Uses:

Retaining walls are used in instances where there is a need to hold back soil. Whether planning to hold back a hill that slopes toward your home or build up a hill that slopes away from your home, the addition of usable yard space can be found with the use of a retaining wall. Other uses include creating raised planter beds or adding tier stepping to a hillside, creating different levels for use.

Free Standing Landscape Wall Uses:

Free standing landscape walls can be constructed using some of the same landscape block units as retaining walls. Freestanding landscape walls are simply decorative walls that are most commonly used for yard division or decoration. Freestanding landscape walls do not hold back soil as is the case with retaining walls.


Wall Height Requirements:

When planning your retaining wall or freestanding landscape wall project, the needed height of the wall will determine which retaining wall block units you will use. Be sure to consult the height requirements on each retaining wall block style when determining which product will best suit your needs. When determining wall height, know that the final height of the landscape wall does include any buried courses of block units.

If your planned retaining wall or freestanding landscape wall is going to be larger than 36 inches, a building permit may be required. Visit the Support section of the RCP Block & Brick website for step by step guides on how to obtain a building permit in the city of San Diego.

RCP Block & Brick also provides free pre-engineered standardized manuals for many of its retaining wall block styles from 36" up to 6'. These standardized manuals will help save you time and money during the permitting process. To view RCP’s standardized manuals for retaining walls, please visit the Keystone Construction Details page under the Support section of the website.
