The Flex MSE Vegetated Wall System is a unique patented engineering solution for vegetated retaining walls and erosion control. Using mechanically stabilised earth (MSE) principles along with geotextile technology, the combination of nonwoven Flex MSE bags and patented interlocking gripper plates allows for strong and easy to install geomodular block structures. Five Rivers are approved suppliers and our specialist staff are fully accredited to carry out installation.

The sustainable and environmental option
Flex MSE is a fully recycled, non toxic product. Installations use 97% less green house gases over comparably sized concrete blocks. The flexible units can be easily adjusted to fit around trees and bedrock. Flex MSE bags are filled with sand and soil, and the bags are water and root permeable. This makes them an ideal planter block for many types of vegetation, including grasses, ground cover, flowers, vines and shrubs.
Flex MSE walls can be hydroseeded or live planted. Five Rivers have experience designing and installing Flex MSE solutions for a range of environments – call us today to discuss your needs.
A cost effective approach
Flex MSE is a permanent solution that lasts almost twice as long as concrete. The cost of installation is around 60% lower than concrete, and it can be installed faster than conventional walls.
Five Rivers can provide unfilled bags, or Flex MSE bags filled with a sand and soil mixture. 1000 square feet of unfilled Flex MSE units can be sent on a single pallet. Savings in machine, material and transportation costs make Flex MSE an obvious choice to generate project cost savings. Five Rivers can assist with smaller shipments, and integrating Flex MSE into larger projects.
