cinder block replacement

Hiccups4March 4, 2012

Hi there, I recently moved into a new house that has a generous sized garden lined with cinder blocks. We wish to remove them as they are ugly (imo) and we have two young children who could easily conk their heads on them. The cinderblocks are used as terracing materials as the garden is on a slope. Any suggestions of replacement materials? Thanks in advance!

Replacement of the retaining wall property? Maybe something along the lines of railroad ties, they're still a bit dangerous but by FAR more forgiving than concrete blocks.

Good luck, SpaceKadet

It would be expensive to replace it.
