How Flex MSE Works?

Flex MSE is a Patented engineered solution for vegetated retaining walls and erosion control.

Flex MSE Bags and Interlocking Plates are used to build naturally resilient Geomodular structures.

A unique soft building material which exhibits hard material qualities, Flex MSE adapts to events that would ruin lesser systems, and only gets stronger and greener as time goes on.

Flex MSE is a Patented system which leverages Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) principles along with geotextile technology to create strong and easy to install Geomodular block structures.

Building With Flex MSE

Flex MSE Bags are:

Filled with sand and organics

An ideal “planter block” for many types of vegetation

Water and root permeable

Flexible enough to create almost any contour or angle

Flex MSE Plates are:

Made from 100% recycled material

Designed to bridge the gap between Bags to create an interlocking mechanical connection

Engineered with Friction Strips for greater Bag to Bag mechanical connection and Geogrid hooks to connect to soil reinforcement

Benefits of Flex MSE

Flex MSE cuts installation times

Flex MSE walls install in 2/3 to 1/2 of the time of conventional walls.

Flex MSE is lightweight and easy to transport

93m2 (1000ft2) of unfilled Flex MSE ships on a single pallet.

Flex MSE is cost effective

The all in cost for Flex MSE walls are generally 40-50% less than other systems. Savings in machine, labour, material and transportation costs make Flex MSE an obvious choice for helping generate project cost savings.

Flex MSE walls are easy to construct

DIY’ers to professional contractors can install Flex MSE using our simple installation methods.

Flex MSE is ideal for a wide variety of applications

Flex MSE works seamlessly with utilities and landforms and integrates perfectly with other building materials and systems.


With Flex MSE 75 year warranty, lifetime costs can be 1/4 of conventional systems.

Biodiversity benefits

Flex MSE unites construction with biodiversity owing to its ability to support a broad spectrum of vegetation
