Best looking retaining wall system

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but what is your opinion of the best looking retaining wall system for a three foot wall? Which system looks closest to natural stone?

Two personal favourites are the Techo Bloc Quarry Stone Wall, and the Permacon Lafayette Wall.

Dont know if either are available in your area or not.

I believe in the US the Permacon Lafayette Wall is known as the BelAir wall manufatured by Belgard.
If you got the money...I got the time.

If they're still in business - BRADSTONE.

Do a Google search for Bradstone in Harpers Ferry WV, owned by Aggregate Industries.

-16 pairs of Hanes socks (the Heavy Duty model), many with holes.
-12 pairs of underwear, ranging from Joe Boxers to Jockey, many are in need of replacement. (no more photo requests please)
-hundreds of t-shirts. Some w/ grease stains, some torn & tattered.
-7 pairs of jeans, ranging from Levis to Polo to GAP. 1/2 of them have holes in 'em.
-1 belt
-1 pair of old worn out Nike shoes.

I did a web search and looks like they are in business. The pictures show a very nice looking product. I will definitely check these out.

Hanover isn't much when it comes to wall products, but I do have to say Chapel Stone has a very nice natural look to it, and its not even sculpted or split. I like it's "marbly" look.

So far, all the walls mentioned are very nice looking. I've always been a fan of Celtik wall, but there's a lot of other products now that look a lot like it.

right now im a fan of Anchor (belgard) country manor wall...it seems to be better produced than some others..its all 3 sided wich is awesome, and the price is competitive.

ive seen some badddd ep stuff lately..some pieces of 3 or 6" wall are a 1/4" big..what are we supposed to do with that? then try mixing the 3 and 6 when its like that..they are mass producing this stuff and just seeing the numbers and the paperwork..
