As far as I'm aware,8x8x16 blocks of cement or concrete, weigh at least 42 lbs. 6s and 4s are less of course. I know someone who broke a truck axle with these from miscalculation like that.

I often see items such as concrete pavers advertised as 16 IN. but then the "actual dimension" is listed as 15.7 IN.

Answer: 
Concrete blocks in the United States are actually 3/8 inch smaller in each dimension to accommodate the intended use of 3/8 inch of grouting (concrete) between the seams. When the construction is complete, each will be 16 inches, so standard measurements will use "perfect" quantities of blocks.

Answer: 
Hi TK.
Thank you for your question.
To build your 250 long block wall with the 8 in. x 8 in. x 16 in. concrete block, you will need about 188 block per course. You will need about 5 rows to make our wall 5 feet tall. Five times 188 = 940. Add another 94 block to account for unplanned breakage. That would bring you to 1034 block to complete your project.
If you want to have a 5-foot-high block wall, Read More

If you want to have a 5-foot-high block wall, you will need to set your first row 4 inches lower than your surface otherwise your wall will be 5.4 feet tall.
You will also need to pour a footer so that you will have a stabilized base.
Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Strong and thoughtfully engineered 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. September 5, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by don't carry what's posted on internet. Sorry but they don't carry these, the ones that they carry are more expensive. February 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No fuss I actually used the blocks for my garden beds. They are low maintenance and look uniform. June 11, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 September 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by garden project I was happy i could purchase my items on line and pick up in store, after work my project is almost completed and i was also happy with the price of the material i needed April 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 19, 2014
