Poured concrete retaining walls can also be decorative and reproduce the look of stone or masonry.

Increte contractors install a poured-in-place decorative concrete wall system called Stone-Crete that creates deep relief stone walls with a variety of available textures and colors. Stone-Crete is used for sound barrier walls, retaining walls, subdivision entry walls or wherever a beautiful deep relief stone wall is desired. Stone-Crete's mass production techniques minimize costly masonry work while providing the structural and aesthetic quality of concrete.

The construction process for these decorative walls involves setting the forms, installing form liners inside the forms (this provides the texture), pouring colored or plain concrete, then stripping the forms and staining the concrete to look like stone or masonry.

Many other manufacturers make form liners and the stains for coloring the poured concrete walls.
