Rock Retaining Walls

Indulge in the timeless elegance of natural stone walls, a distinctive form of retaining wall that holds a unique charm. Big rock boulder retaining walls, when meticulously constructed, not only support themselves but also effectively withstand the pressure exerted by the material they hold back. Versatile in both location and size, stone retaining walls offer a cost-effective alternative to concrete and brick, bestowing your landscape with a natural, classic, and enduring aesthetic.

The addition of retaining walls has the power to elevate the beauty of any landscape, making them an invaluable asset, especially for outdoor gardens. Consider the myriad benefits they bring:

Enhanced Landscape Beauty:
Retaining walls serve as architectural accents, enhancing the overall beauty of your landscape. They offer the perfect opportunity to carve out charming patios or define distinct areas, adding a touch of sophistication to your outdoor space.

Soil Stabilization:
Functioning as a soil dam, retaining walls play a crucial role in maintaining the integrity of the earth. By holding the soil in its designated place, they contribute to stability and prevent undesired shifts.

Prevention of Flooding and Erosion:
Retaining walls act as protective barriers, curbing the risk of flooding and erosion. They provide a shield against potential damage to the surrounding landscape, ensuring longevity and preserving the natural beauty of the terrain.

Cost-Effective Landscape Maintenance:
Investing in retaining walls can prove to be a wise financial decision. By reducing the risk of erosion and other forms of landscape wear and tear, they contribute to lower maintenance costs over time, offering both aesthetic and economic advantages.

Incorporating natural stone retaining walls not only adds visual appeal but also serves as a strategic and lasting investment in the well-being and allure of your outdoor spaces.

If you are planning to add (or are required to add) a rock/masonry wall taller than 4′ to your property (whether built with rock, brick, block, masonry, concrete, railroad ties, etc.), or a wall less than 4′ tall that is holding a surcharge, a permit is required. Be aware that rock walls cannot be built in the front utility easement

All properties are required to maintain drainage on their own property or to an approved drainage easement and to the public way. No water can find its way onto adjoining properties beyond the easement. Sloping lots will require special grading attention, including V-ditches, swales and rock/masonry walls. Slope cannot be greater than 2:1 (two horizontal to one vertical). Rock/masonry walls are required to be installed when slopes exceed 2:1.
