What Goes Into Our Rockeries
We are accustomed to working with a tremendous selection of materials due to the extensive number of Woodinville property owners we have worked with. This level of in-depth understanding helps us select the perfect stones and plants for your home’s needs. When selecting materials for your properties build, we account for the environmental benefits as well as factor in lighting needs for any plants that we select to enhance your Woodinville home.
Most homeowners are overwhelmed with the sizable selection of stones that can be chosen from in the construction of your property including rockery, water features and retaining walls. Our walls are created from the best selection of granite, limestone, basalt, and sandstone. Based on your desires for the design of the project, we are able to select the finest size, shape, color, and texture of rock. The final factor in material selection is based on the style of rockery that you have chosen to have built on your Woodinville property.
The assortment of plants available to add to your rock walls can tremendously improve the finished look of your Woodinville home. We usually suggest if you are having a rock wall installed that you take the time to add even more beauty to the finished product with a selection of plants. Many plants that complement rock wall structures thrive in this region. Some that we recommend considering are perennials, ground cover pants, rock cress, and yarrow.
Your home may require the installation of a full retaining wall depending on the environmental conditions of your Woodinville property. When our team meets with you at your home, they will assess and discuss with you the optimal placement and construction of your wall. Our staff will consider all of your suggestions and factor them into the final design for your approval. With your approval of the design and rock selections, we will immediately begin construction.
Types of Rock Retaining Walls
At B&D Rockeries, we focus on the construction of three styles of rock retaining walls.
One Man Half Man Rock
Best for small walls, these walls can be constructed mostly by hand. The term half man and one man rocks can be deceiving. Stones of this size require equipment and men with crowbars to move due to the fact that they are far too heavy for a person to lift. Due to the weight of these stones, crews for these builds are much larger so that the work can be completed in a timely manner.
Two to Three Man Rock
Rocks of this size can only be moved with the use of specialized equipment. The work teams on these projects consist of 3 men. One will work on site to assemble the rock wall, one will drive the truck back and forth bringing materials to the work site, and the last man will operate the machine to move the rocks in place for the first crewmen.
These are the jobs that our company specializes in, and they are the most common work that we do. We employ specialized mini machines that we have designed to aid our crew in a quick and efficient manner. With these machines, our teams can construct 400 -600 feet of rock wall in a single day.
Surprisingly, boulders are not considered a good material for rock wall construction due to their smooth, rounded shape. Instead, they are best employed for visual enhancement to your rock wall. Boulders make a striking addition to a finished wall and complement the beauty of any rock construction.
In addition to plants, B&D Rockeries also uses water features to enhance the beauty of your structure. Water features encompass all manner of water enhancements from pools to waterfalls as well as fountains. The inclusion of these features often increases the value of your home as well as correcting, enhancing, or regulating the water flow in through your Woodinville property. There are many options that can be chosen to create any visual look that you desire.
B&D Rockeries will work with you to give your home a unique voice and our staff will happily assist you in hand picking the perfect choice of water feature options for your home.
