Retaining Walls

Retaining Walls

Retaining walls are used for numerous reasons in landscaping like holding back soil, improving landscape drainage, controlling water-flow and adding aesthetics. Since these projects serve a very specific purpose, it’s important that the building material used is durable, can withstand consistent moisture and other weather conditions and can meet all project requirements. Our structural HDPE recycled plastic retaining walls fit the bill perfectly.

Plastic lumber is manufactured from recyclables like milk jugs and laundry detergent bottles. HDPE (high-density polyethylene) is an ultra-strong plastic building material that is durable and will withstand extreme weather conditions. It also doesn’t rot, mold or degrade and is perfect for golf course, parks and recreation and landscaping signage. Recycled plastic lumber is graffiti-resistant. In fact, most chemicals will not adhere to the material, and it can easily be cleaned with a soapy water mixture. It is resistant to animals chewing the material and won’t splinter. It also comes in many color options, profile lengths and shapes. Bedford Technology offers secondary work including CNC engraving and embossing, which eliminates the need for paint because the message is engraved into the plastic lumber. You can customize your sign to meet any aesthetic requirements or preferences you may have.

Turf Boards

Turf Boards

Traditional wood, although a common building material for turf boards, is not the best solution because it can rot, mold and deteriorate over time. This can cause the turf to shift over time and may require replacement, which can cost time and money. Instead, use plastic lumber as a long-lasting and durable solution.

Resistant to moisture and insects, Tangent’s plastic lumber will not rot, corrode, warp or splinter, making it the ideal material for artificial turf boards.
