What To Know About Boulder Wall Construction

  • Soil & Site Assessment

    The long-term durability of your boulder wall starts with understanding your site and soil. We identify your soil conditions, drainage capacity, and unique aspects of your land, in order to devise a seawall that will deliver years of reliable performance 

  • Matching The Materials

    A boulder wall is as much an aesthetic improvement to your yard as it is a protection. We'll work with you to source local boulder materials that match the natural landscape and bring the vision you have for your yard to life.

  • It's A Tough DIY Project

    Do-it-yourself spirit is great, but a boulder retaining wall is a tricky project that's often best left to the professionals. Unless each step is done accurately and correctly, the result could be an unstable wall that's quick to fail.
