Slope attachment with embankment stones
There are many different types of concrete embankment stones, which are especially popular and therefore often used are the round stones, which can also be planted after installation. They are hollow inside and have a groove on one side, through which they are pushed into each other.
- In order to secure a slope with such plant stones, a foundation is needed in which the first row of stones is placed. For this purpose, the soil at the foot of the embankment is removed about half to one meter and filled with gravel or gravel.
- The top layer is concrete, the thickness of which should be at least ten centimeters. In the still wet concrete then the bottom row of embankment stones is set, which is firmly connected after curing of the concrete with this and therefore not more

To surround a staircase that leads up an embankment, round palisades can be used at different heights. Also, they often have on one side a Kehlung, through which they are pushed together and get a good stability.

To make them stable, the palisades should be embedded in concrete about one quarter of their height.
