For gardens on an incline, WoodBlocX can be used to effectively landscape slopes and hills into terraces, borders and flat lawns with additional bespoke built-in features such as steps, benches and pillars.

WoodBlocX are strong and durable, and much safer and easier to use than hauling around heavy railway sleepers.

How do WoodBlocX retaining walls and terraces work?

  • A single wall will retain earth up to a height of one metre (approximately 3’).
  • Multiple walls in a terrace design can retain sloping gardens and banks of greater height.
  • Create straight or curving walls with ease.
  • Add steps, pillars and benches for ease of access, aesthetic value and somewhere to relax.
  • The pieces are light and easy to build into walls. They need no power tools or technical knowledge to assemble.
  • WoodBlocX are made from pressure-treated, British, wood and are guaranteed to last for at least 15 years without rotting or distorting, so you can be sure your design is safe, sturdy and durable.
  • Build on any surface; earth, paving or concrete.
  • WoodBlocX are certified organic by the Soil Association, so there’s no need to worry about leaching chemicals (which can be an issue with other timber such as railway sleepers).

WoodBlocX award winning raised beds, as seen on the BBC Dragons’ Den, gives you the ability to choose any shape or size raised bed designed exclusively to suit your garden. We guarantee our entire range of structures for 15 years minimum against structural failure.

Raised beds and planters make it much easier to grow and maintain vegetables and plants. They offer improved soil, better drainage and warmer soil in the spring time. Growing in raised beds also helps keep damaging fungus and disease out of your soil and allows for easy soil rejuvenation. The extra height WoodBlocX can give your plants will also help rooting and allow a much larger crop in a smaller spaces.

WoodBlocX offer kits for raised beds and planters, retaining walls and steps, raised timber ponds, seating and also offer a completely free bespoke design service to create unique solutions for gardens and outdoor spaces.

Why use WoodBlocX raised beds?

  • The added height of raised beds can bring well-drained soil to a boggy garden, rooting space to a stony soil, or space to grow where there is no soil at all.
  • Raised beds can be filled (and easily re-filled) with fresh soil that is free from weed seeds and diseases, and rich in nutrients.
  • Vegetables and fruit can be planted more intensively, giving bigger harvests from a smaller space.
  • The extra height off the ground makes maintaining the plants easier, with less strain on your knees and back.
  • The soil in raised beds warms up faster than open ground in the spring, giving plants a head start on the growing season.
  • By working on the beds from the sides, rather than treading on the soil, the plants’ roots will not be compacted, keeping them healthier.
  • Raised beds can keep plants out of reach of rabbits and household pets.
  • A raised bed or two is a great way to allow the less able to continue gardening, and to introduce children to growing plants.

How will raised beds look in my garden?

  • WoodBlocX raised beds are both beautiful and practical. The wood will age naturally to a soft grey, or they can be painted any colour you like.
  • Raised beds introduce plants and greenery to barren courtyards, patios or tarmacked front gardens.
  • The beds add height, structure and formality to any garden, and can be rectangular, square, circular or any shape that you design.

Why choose WoodBlocX for my raised beds?

  • WoodBlocX are easy to construct, and require no heavy lifting or power tools to build.
  • Made from sustainably-sourced wood, they are certified organic by the Soil Association.
  • WoodBlocX are guaranteed to last at least 15 years and are suitable for siting on any surface, including slopes.
