Fully Vegetated Retaining Walls

Why not be smarter about how we design retaining walls? SmartSlope is a retaining wall that happens to be vegetated. The fundamental reason Furbish develops products is to find more elegant ways to solve ordinary challenges. So when we tackled the problem of finding innovative and eco-friendly solutions to structural retaining walls, we remembered how nature works, how nature is multi-functional, and how nature’s solutions can be the most elegant…and SmartSlope was born.

SmartSlope is a vegetated retaining wall system that is comprised of open celled pre-cast concrete modules. The system utilizes a polymeric reinforcement strap. Each module is stacked in a staggered pattern that creates planting pockets. The pockets are filled with growth media and planted. The entire face of the wall will be covered with vegetation upon grow out.

Designing
Contact us for a SmartSlope Design Guide, including details, design ideas, and guidance for using SmartSlope on your project. We can customize SmartSlope details for a variety of applications.

Specifying
Contact us for 3-part CSI specifications customized to suit your project.

Engineering
SmartSlope is engineered similarly to other segmental and MSE retaining walls. We can assist engineers to get started designing their first SmartSlope wall, and we are available for any engineering questions. We can provide data files for SmartSlope for use with MSEW and SRWall software. If needed, we can provide complete wall designs.

Purchasing
SmartSlope is sold as a complete vegetated retaining wall system, including structural components, plants and planting soil. This allows us to ensure optimal success of each project.

Installing
Installation of SmartSlope is fast and easy. Contact us for a Commercial Installation Guide or Homeowner’s Installation Guide.
