Urbanite is broken up concrete. I have been searching fro some for
quite a long time and finally found some small piece. Usually when
they break it up the pieces are huge and unmovable.
I am thinking that I will use stone mason techniques to build the
wall as the Urbanite is roughly the size and shape of rocks.
>>I have collected a bunch of urbanite and recycled red brick and am
>>hoping in the next two weeks to build a retaining wall out of them.
>>The wall will be 40 feet long and only about 18 inches tall and is
>>to hold back water. Does anyone have any resources about building
>>with urbanite? How to do it. etc?
> I don't even know what urbanite /is/. According to both google
