Interlocking Concrete Blocks
Upland Ready Mix is the largest producer of interlocking concrete blocks on the North Island. Concrete blocks are growing in popularity, as they are extremely versatile, easy to install, and exceedingly durable. Concrete blocks are used extensively in the agriculture and aquaculture industries; as well as, in the construction industry for earth retention and material storage.
Our interlocking block design consists of a pyramid shaped keyway which locks each block together and resists horizontal loading.
Standard dimensions of a regular block are 5 feet (60 inches) long by 2.5 feet (30 inches) wide by 2.5 feet (30 inches) high. Approximate weight of a full size regular block is 2100 kg or 4200 lbs.
We produce a wide variety of blocks, comprised of different fit and finish options:
Half Height (Vertically)
Full / Half
We stock number 1 & 2 grade blocks in both regular and bench finishes. A number 1 block consists of a monolithic pour and smooth finish. Grade 2 blocks have a cold joint and/or minor imperfections.
Raised Concrete Garden Bed

These garden bed panels are designed to lock together and can be used in any configuration you can think of. Panels come in either 3’ or 5’ lengths and are able to be lifted with 2 people making them extremely versatile and user friendly. These items are in high demand so contact us today to place your order. (Color options available upon request).
Interlocking Planter Block
Interlocking concrete lock blocks have become increasingly popular over the years and we wanted to be able to provide our customers with a different option when finishing/capping their retaining walls. Our planter blocks are no different than our standard lock block; however, they are outfitted with two large knockouts and weeping holes on either side of the lifting eye. These blocks are capable of holding a half yard of soil making them a great option for bringing a little more greenery to your project.
Custom blocks are also available upon request.
