Retaining Walls

Call Today

As natives of Rock Hill, South Carolina, we are aware of the unpredictable ways in which mother nature can affect a homeowner’s grass. However, retaining walls can alleviate a surprising amount of those natural aches and pains. Typically, the purpose of these constructions is to resist the pull of gravity, which would otherwise cause the ground and soil to go downward naturally. As a result, retaining walls prevent erosion on inclined lawns. Retaining walls, however, can provide additional answers for a variety of yard problems: they can expand the amount of usable space on your lot, control water runoff, and add more seats.

Retaining walls are helpful and occasionally required for your yard, but they can also be attractive. Our skilled retaining wall builders at Bull Mountain Outdoor Living & Construction LLC collaborate with you to create a retaining wall that both addresses your issues and enhances the beauty of your yard. Your retaining wall design possibilities are numerous. Although affordable, timber walls may accumulate moisture and decay over time. We can construct a retaining wall out of poured concrete or interlocking blocks for a more contemporary appearance. Consider natural stone if you value charm and character above all else. Together, we’ll develop a plan for a retaining wall that retains soil, provides adequate drainage, and endures forever.

Shoreline Stabilization

In addition to constructing retaining walls, we also offer shoreline stabilization services. Shoreline stabilization protects your property from erosion by reinforcing the bank with stone, concrete, or other materials. This type of work is often required to obtain a building permit for construction near a body of water. It is also sometimes necessary to stabilize a shoreline that has already been eroded to prevent further damage. Natural shorelines are varied and include living plants, stumps, decaying logs, and a variety of sized rocks. A beach can withstand the effects of ice, wind, and waves thanks to this diversity. Native trees, shrubs, and perennials prevent soil erosion with their foliage-covered branches and intricate root systems, which help to bind soil particles together. The turf grass sown for lawns has a weak root system and offers no support underground.

Maintaining a naturally vegetated shoreline is a simple first step in halting erosion and land loss. Vegetation absorbs stormwater runoff from roads, driveways, and rooflines further upstream and controls erosion. Fish rely on insects as a significant source of food, which is why leaning trees drop insects into the water. In addition, the shade and cooling effect of overhanging trees and bushes are advantageous to coldwater fish species. Our team has extensive experience with shoreline stabilization and can help you determine if this type of work is necessary for your project. We will also develop a customized plan to stabilize your shoreline and protect your property from future erosion.
