With Allan Block retaining wall products, a large sweeping curve or a quick tight one are easy to construct and will leave a great looking finished product. A curve is the strongest, fastest and most aesthetically pleasing option when a change of direction is required within a retaining wall. The minimum radius one can build with a full-length (roughly 18 in.) Allan Block unit such as a Classic, Lite or Dover is 4 ft.

Learn more about installing curves by reviewing our installation recommendations. If you need to make a tighter radius you may want to consider incorporating one of our units that are ~9 in. in length such as the Jumbo Jr, Bordeaux or Palermo. These units will allow you to tighten that radius to 2.5 ft – (picture 2 below). Using these products will allow for a quick installation and a finished product that will meet the aesthetic requirements necessary for your project.
