SmartSlope is a vegetated retaining wall system 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.
