    Hi Kerryowang, If they are to be used for a retaining wall and have been engineered, there is normally a certain standard for the stone. The ones which are shown in the pics above, have been filled with local stone from a local quarry, so that they are in keeping with the building and will fit in with the look of the traditional period home forever. I have seen them filled with all sorts of other things over the years, but if they are not filled correctly, they would lose their integrity. If you fill them with the incorrect stone, the stone may break down over time and fall out the bottom and sides, leaving you with a mess in the garden and a retaining wall, that no longer retains. If you have someone else install a wall for you, you should always ask about BBA certificates and if they offer a guarantee of any description. Here are some pics of stunning decorative walls that I have been collecting over the years. They seem to be getting more and more popular these days...
