Board Form Concrete Planter & Retaining Walls

The forming frame is made from un-sanded and unpolished wood, which means the concrete takes on the wood grain texture as it cures. The finish has become very popular over the recent years because it beautifully marries the organic texture and feel of wood with the convenience and durability of concrete. The grain design softens the concrete while still retaining the modern, edgy aesthetic.

Sustainability and the Environment

  • Structural Concrete is durable—its lifespan is actually two or three times longer than other common building materials.
  • One of the main raw ingredients in concrete is limestone, which is the most abundant mineral on Earth.
  • Concrete is great at absorbing and retaining heat, which means it will increase energy efficiency of a building and reduce HVAC expenses.
  • Its reflective properties will decrease air-conditioning costs in the hot summer months.
  • Concrete produces little waste as it can be produced in batches specific to project needs.
