Very heavy duty product. These cinder blocks are excellent for building structures that need to be strong and rigid. I used them as the core of a brick mailbox I built and then tied the exterior brick to the cinder block core with brick ties. The porous nature of these blocks means that they take mortar very well. They have a sculpted center as well that helps you grab hold of the block with your hands. The blocks are pre-notched with holes to allow for you to run wire or plumbing through the blocks if needed. Very quality product.

Sorry but they don't carry these, the ones that they carry are more expensive.

I actually used the blocks for my garden beds. They are low maintenance and look uniform.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Cinder blocks
I have used them for under a 12x12 shed . Surrounding the perimeter of the base with #4stone in the middle. Therefore keeping the concrete from moving in any direction. Keeping part of the stone out of the blocks . With 6in concrete on top.This worked out very well for a base for a 12x12 shed

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SnowRacer64 Good edges and easy to stack
I made 2 wood shelf support columns with 2 blocks stacked on end so that they're 32" high. They're far enough apart to place a 2 X 6 X 8 foot pressure treated board on top. It's important that the blocks were square and had good edges to allow stacking them on end. I've got several very large and heavy flower pots on this shelf, so far it's steady and sturdy enough.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by happygardener These Blocks Work Great For Raised Beds
I have probably bought close to 100 of these blocks to use as raised garden beds. If you are careful to line them up nice and straight, they look very nice. I use a depth of two cinder blocks so plant roots can have adequate room to grow. And depending on what you are growing in your raised bed, you can use the holes in the cinder blocks to plant herbs. Also, since I only stack these on top of each other - no cementing- I can move the beds around/change their size as I see fit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mikeytheb It's a concrete block
I purchased a number of these to use as a foundation for a storage building. They were all uniform weight and strength (it seems). There were a couple of slightly different design details, but they did not have any impact on the way I was using them. If you get some, make sure you look at each one to be sure they are the same. if it will make a difference for you. Otherwise, they are blocks.
