Nature Retained

The Flex MSE® Vegetated Wall System provides the strength of traditional retaining walls, without the need for concrete, rebar, wire mesh, or supplemental drainage.

The globally popular Flex MSE® Vegetated Wall system uses a unique soft building material which exhibits hard material qualities and produces naturally resilient Geomodular structures. This exciting innovation is used to stabilise hillsides, level sites, and protect stream, lake, and coastal banks from erosion; all while creating beautiful landscapes and re-establishing nature’s strength.
 
Flex MSE® structures are essentially built like retaining walls and finished like a landscaping project. The key advantage is its ability to accept all types of vegetation over 100% of the face. Vegetation can include grasses, ground covers, flowers, vines, and small shrubs applied by either live planting, live staking, or simply hydroseeding.
 
Advance Landscape Systems customer HMR Transport & Excavation is an enthusiastic advocate for the system, having installed it for many clients across Canterbury. Director Carlton Everest says, "It’s exciting to be able to offer an eco-friendly and cost-effective solution for residential or agricultural environments that look amazing." He believes it will become the leading solution throughout Canterbury due to it being a fully free-draining system – this means it has a very high settlement tolerance, allowing it to last almost twice as long as concrete walls and weather events that can do severe damage to other systems.
"It’s exciting to be able to offer an eco-friendly and cost-effective solution for residential or agricultural environments that look amazing."  

If you or your client is looking for an exciting, appealing alternative to the traditional retaining wall, there is now a green, sustainable and cost-effective method of retaining. With a 120-year design life and a 75-year warranty attached, Flex MSE® could be the ideal solution.
