The Simplicity wall block is a great option for both homeowners and contractors. It’s small, light, and can be used in a wide variety of applications. Having a rectangular shape that’s finished on all sides without tapered edges makes it especially simple to build with.

Some customers have used the Simplicity block to build pizza ovens, outdoor kitchens and islands, walls, and pergola columns. You can also build vertical railings, wall caps, balusters, freestanding walls, seating benches, and seating walls.

Glue is recommended when stability is needed since there are no locking mechanisms built into the block.

Special order color: Old Chicago Blend

Delivery starts at $85, but varies greatly depending on:

  • The number of loads required;
  • If you can offload; and
  • Your distance from the store.

Please call us with your details and we’ll be happy to provide pricing.

Most deliveries can be completed within a week.

Retaining wall blocks are measured by their front facing square footage.

If you calculate the length x height of your wall, you’ll arrive at the square footage you need. Then divide by the square footage of an individual block to get the number of blocks you need.

(It’s always a good idea to add on 10% to be safe.)

If you purchase by the pallet, simply return the pallet in good condition for a $15 credit to use on your next trip to Grass Roots. “Good condition” means that there is not more than one board missing or broken.

Walls over 4′ tall should be built with GeoGrid reinforcement.

We can get stamped engineered retaining wall plans for your project directly from the block engineer for a fraction of the cost. Contact us to start the process.

We cannot offer returns on hardscape products. Please be sure to calculate your needs carefully before purchase.

Watering Tips

  • Our watering advice is based on plants living in a 72 degree house. Porch life or humidity could have an impact on its watering needs.
  • Always use tepid water for watering your houseplants.
  • Broadleaf plants need less water in fall and winter, but you should never allow the soil to completely dry out.
