The advantages to using Shelter EPS Geofoam for Planters and Landscaping
Shelter Geofoam blocks weigh as little as 1/100th that of soil, making it the perfect fill medium for landscaping fill on projects with weight restrictions like indoor planters and plaza decks.
Shelter Geofoam for Planters/Landscaping provides a lightweight, environmentally friendly solution with fast installation. Utilizing our patented Block Lock to stack and connect the Geofoam blocks, large areas can be filled quickly without requiring compaction.
Placing Geofoam blocks directly behind retaining walls results in a considerable reduction of lateral stresses on the wall. This will reduce strength requirements and therefore the amount of material used to construct the wall itself.
