Hollow core blocks are used when core filling with aggregate is required where additional drainage is required or additional strength for wall height. These hollow blocks are also used when building a fence on top of a retaining wall – poles can be placed inside the block for the fencing.

Stackable or interlocking blocks are perfect for DIY projects. As these blocks have self locating interlocking lugs, makes stacking each block much easier to do.
