Having a retaining wall installed on your Shoreline property is an excellent way to increase your property value and its aesthetic beauty. Retaining walls help direct water flow through your property, and their placement can be as much functional as enjoyable.
B&D Rockeries works with Shoreline homeowners to create beautiful custom retaining walls for difficult landscapes. Our crews are knowledgeable in all aspects of retaining wall construction, and our methods will ensure strong, durable walls that will serve your home for decades. B&D offers our licensed services in Shoreline, Snohomish, Bothell, Everett, Seattle, and the rest of King County.
Shoreline Retaining Walls
Our experts are skilled at installing any type of retaining wall. Whether you need a cement wall or are looking into non-cement options, B&D can help you make the right choice for your Shoreline property.
To construct your wall, we will source beautiful rocks from the best local rock quarries. Working with local quarries allows us to find rocks with the perfect color and size to match your desired wall color and preferences at a reasonable, competitive cost.
Quarry rock is a limited resource because a rock’s color and fashion is unique to its quarry. This means that your wall will become a treasured part of your home, for when a particular rock quarry’s supply is used up, that wall can never be replicated with other rocks.
Size of Retaining Walls
Retaining walls come in many shapes and sizes. The next three sections offer a few examples of the types of walls we can build:
One and Half Man
These are the walls of choice when you intend to build a small wall. These walls are normally under four feet in height and are built on one-man foundation stones. The top layers will be built up from smaller rocks. This style of retaining wall requires intensive labor to construct and often results in a more expensive project.
Two and Three Man
Most frequently, retaining walls are constructed out of two-man and three-man rocks. These larger rocks are well suited for many kinds of retaining walls. Because we are able to use our machines with these larger stones, these kinds of walls are actually easier to build than one-man or half-man projects. Furthermore, machine assistance speeds up construction and often makes these walls cost less to produce than other retaining walls.
Occasionally you will see boulders used in the construction of rock retaining walls. These beautiful rocks come in all shapes and sizes and make an impressive addition to any property.
If a boulder wall is something you would like to have, it is critical that you find a building company that has multiple years of experience. Inexperienced builders don’t have the knowledge needed to work with these giant rocks and often find their walls collapse after only a few years. B&D Rockeries has years of experience in assembling boulder walls, which is why the retaining walls we build are sturdy and pass the test of time.
Determining the proper placement of your Shoreline retaining wall is key to your wall’s success, and one of the biggest factors to consider when deciding where to build is knowing how water flows on your property. B&D offers professional analysis to assist you in picking the best location to place your wall.
The size of a retaining wall build on your Shoreline property depends on your design and the rocks you select – you get the wall you want! Our experienced staff will assist you every step of the way and give you a final cost estimate so that you can make an educated decision about your wall.
