Curved Walls

Document imprimable.pdf

Building Curves

Curved and serpentine walls are simple to build. AB's patented design allows for easy installation of both inside and outside curves. Most curves can be built with no cutting involved.
  • Try to maintain an offset of the vertical seams by at least ¼ of the block length from the courses below. Cutting a block in half or using the AB Jumbo Junior or the AB Palermo, will assist in creating a proper offset.
  • Before constructing your wall, layout the design using a garden hose or paint. Measure the radius of each curve and refer to the radius chart. Select blocks that will fit your design or adjust your design to fit the blocks you have selected. As a rule, gentle sweeping curves produce more aesthetically pleasing walls.

Inside Curves

  • To build a flowing inside curve, keep the front of the blocks tight together and fan out the blocks keeping the space consistent between the backs of the blocks.

Outside Curves

  • To build smooth outside curves, remove one or both of the wings from the back of the blocks and tighten the radius of the curve. To obtain a clean break, hit the back of the wing with a hammer.
