Walls & Slopes & Shores

Create attractive, naturally vegetated landscapes on your next restoration project

Landscape architects, designers, and civil engineers thrive on the possibilities our GreenLoxx® Systems offer to their green structure projects. Also known as living walls, GreenLoxx systems provide the underlying structure needed to permanently stabilize extreme grade changes. In addition, GreenLoxx systems offer higher aesthetic appeal than conventional block or concrete systems – at a fraction of the cost. We offer a wide range of Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE), Reinforced Soil Slope (RSS), and Vegetated Slope Facing (VSF) solutions for banks, walls and slopes up to 90 degrees of inclination, with varying degrees of design flexibility and planting options. GreenLoxx systems, just like rain gardens and bioswales, help minimize stormwater runoff, cool the environment, and provide habitat for native creatures. Vegetated slopes and walls also contribute to the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) points of a project in several categories.



Lightweight components


Highly efficient installation


No footing or leveling pad required


Seed injection into system (optional)


Easily reinforced for severe applications (requires engineering stamp and soil analysis)


Customizable vegetation with plants, plugs, live stakes or seed


May assist in qualification for LEED® Green Building Rating and Certification credits under LEED Building Design & Construction (BD+C), New Construction v4.


Naturally restore eroded or damaged slopes, riparian waterways, shoreline banks, and more with GreenLoxx. Create attractive, naturally vegetated landscapes without the use of hard concrete materials.

We provide FREE access to our Design Manual. Our database includes product specifications, installation guidelines and recommendations, as well as CADs for over 25 applications. Engineers, designers and installers rely on our Design Manual to evaluate our products and find best suitable solutions.


MKB has a full team of experts ready to help you identify, design, implement and install the most suitable living shoreline solution for each specific project. Among the basic design principles to consider, our systems can help with the following:

  • Containment
  • Energy dissipation
  • Filtration
  • Detention
  • Retention
  • Vegetation establishment
  • Adsorption of invisible pollutants
  • Diffusion
  • Diversion
  • Encapsulation
