Retaining Wall Types
B&D Rockeries primarily uses three types of rock in the projects we work on.
One Man, Half Man Rock
Rocks that can be mostly moved by hand and are excellent for small wall projects. It is important to note that one man and half man rocks are not rocks a man can pick up, these are rocks that require the use of a crowbar to move. On half man projects, we bring out a larger crew so we can complete most of the work in a single day.
Two and Three Man Rock
These Rocks can only be moved into position with the aid of a machine. This means that our teams will have one operator as well as one man on the ground and another driving a supply truck. This is commonly the type of work our crews do. We use a mini machine that has been modified to make the construction of these type of walls quick and economical. We can install 400-600 square foot of retaining wall on an average day.
Due to their rounded edges and smooth surfaces, boulders are rarely used in the construction of rock walls. They may sometimes be inserted within rock walls to add aesthetics enhancement as they are generally reserved for decorative uses on a property.
Water features are a wonderful way to elevate the beauty of your rockery. Everything from ponds, pools, falls, and fountains are all great features that in addition to adding beauty to your project can also help control water flow on your property. With a wide number of Water feature options available, we can construct nearly any look you desire.
