Dozens of natural stone surfaces were cast using Reala™ Technology to create the split limestone appearance of Mackinaw Wall. Sold in a 3-stone random bundle, the large scale format of Mackinaw makes it efficient to install for freestanding, retaining or garden walls, in curved or linear designs. Coping is optional, thanks to the solid construction and unique texture of this bold, modern wall.
Makinaw Wall is an attractive, natural stone-like landscape retaining block. This is a gravity system which relies on shear weight to retain small embankments or for use in making planters.
APPLICATIONS – Design and build projects such as planters, steps, seat walls and other decorative landscape retaining walls. Recommended for straight applications only.
CAPACITY – walls up to 2 ft. (60 cm) in height
RECOMMENDED BASE STABILIZATION – one layer of DriveGrid™ stabilization grid between sub-grade and base material. Use under Standard Base or Permeable Base.
STANDARD BASE – Min. 6” – 8” of ¾” Crusher Run gravel (any road base standard in accordance with ASTM-D2940) compacted to 98% Standard Proctor Density (SPD).
ALTERNATIVE PERMEABLE BASE – Min. 6” – 8” of ¾“ clear open-graded stone compacted to achieve full particle lock-up and consolidation. (Clear open-graded does not compact but does consolidate slightly by rattling the particles together.)
LEVELING – Leveling retaining wall blocks directly on top of gravel is tedious and generally does not yield the best results. U-Grip Base units or universal base pads are recommended under all Unilock walls for improved accuracy and speedier installation. Additional benefits include long term structural integrity and an overall better appearance. Poured concrete leveling pads, reinforced with rebar, are also a great way to accomplish leveling, particularly for larger installations. You must ensure that the concrete is poured and finished perfectly in order to achieve a good visual appearance.
CONNECTION – Just like stacked natural stone, Mackinaw Wall relies on gravity to hold back gardens and embankments.
HANDLING – No specific handling instructions.
COPING - This wall does not require coping, but coping is sometimes used to complete the installation visually. Choose any manufactured coping such as Ledgestone Coping or any of our natural stone coping options. Cutting may be required.
