Are there corner stones for this brick ?

Are there corner stones for this brick ?
Asked by: KoKo
No, there are not. You can split or cut for a 90 degree corner or the block will do a gentle curve without any cutting because the sides are bevelled. Thank you for your inquiry.

Is there a way I can order these by the pallet and have them delivered?

Basalite Model # 100027553 Internet # 100599771 Store SKU # 942643 16 in. Tan/Charcoal Retaining Wall Block Pleasanton, CA store -- I'm about 12 miles away Also, can I receive a discount for ordering in quantity?
Asked by: Stephen
Yes, I called & ordered mine over the phone last week, & they were delivered on Friday am. However, it took 2 calls, as the first time the person taking the order misunderstood & calculated how many I'd need. It is a 3 sided wall, with the 2 shorter sides being 9 ft long & ~ 3 feet high. The calculation was for 9 feet tall (high) as opposed to 3 feet tall!! Big difference. The point being, be very clear in your description whether over the phone or in person. Good to know...the blocks I received, fr San Ramon/Danville location, were not nearly as dark as the photo. I'd call them tan, with a speckling of "charcoal", whereas the photos me anyhow...appear almost all charcoal, with spattering of tan. They charge a delivery fee, & a $15 per pallet deposit. The deposit is refundable when the pallets are returned. Not sure how I'll manage that in my SUV, but since I still think there are far too many blocks, they may have to come pick up the leftovers....for which they charge a "Pick-up fee" which is exactly the same as the delivery fee. I'm about 7-8 miles away from them, but I think it's a standard fee. They did not give a discount despite my purchasing 3 pallets + 20 additional (which I told him not to include). I sent one pallet back, but haven't seen the price adjustment yet. They are NOT scored for "easier" breaking down the middle (front to back) which makes no sense to me, since you will inevitably end up needing a partial block on the ends. They are scored for "easier" breaking from side to side, but we haven't needed to break them that way. Oh, be sure to get a rubber mallet for leveling. One or two cracked under a metal mallet. Lastly, they said we would not need caps. However, they fit together with big gaps on each side, which widens toward the back, so I'm online tonight looking for caps. I don't see how that is going to be a good "topper" appearance, unless we alternate them to fit the sides tightly. Good luck!

Customer Reviews

16 in. Tan/Charcoal Retaining Wall Block is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best way I have found to install wall. I have now installed 22 pallets, of 60 bricks per pallet. As stated earlier by other review, the base is very important. I dig 6 inch trench and fill with 3/4 gravel. Then set block with 4lb dead blow hammer. Check level front to back and side to side. Lay next block in and level brick to brick along with side to side and back to front. Once base row is set the next row goes in fairly easily. I now have a little over 165 feet of retaining walls between 3 and 4 feet high. I also put a French drain at base with approximately 4 to 6 inches of gravel behind bricks. I now have to save to get approximately 24 more pallets for next project.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from building a retaining walls,things should know. If using 16in x 6in x 10 1/2 in the wt per block 50lbs or so! may want to consider smaller / lighter wt if have Back restrictions. foundation is very inportant once the 1st row or 2 is set( level / sloped) the rest will fall into to place (not literally speaking) Except if when not going in a striaght line. Having to curve forward / back or left / right. You have to be careful of the spacing and the lip / ledge on the lower bottom gets in the way. Cutting,scorring or chipping the blocks is not very easy. mayby chipping,not cutting / scorring. I was told to score with a chisel, then hammer the chisel. then it should break right down the middle. didn't work for me. going to ask for proffessional help so can complete end of wall. and/or make a 90 degree turn. But I not giving up will be adding another level above the 1st( 35ft long X 31/2 ft tall) retainning wall. Hopefully by summertime!!! or at least get started. But get as much information you can from EVERYONE! GOOD LUCK!!! SAFETY 1ST!!
