In addition to working with reputable landscape architects we provide complete design services, including drafting. We handle our own site preparation, permitting and engineering (when required) and re-vegetation. We also provide lifetime craftsmanship guarantees on finished installations.
Not All Boulder Walls are Created Equal
Stone is a common construction material in the Southeast. Sadly, most local boulder work is of marginal or poor quality. Many boulder walls lack appropriate footings, drainage, backfill or other necessary construction fundamentals such as broken joints, correct “hearting” and appropriate battering. Each year many boulder walls that should have lasted for centuries fail as a result. In fact, many of these are walls in name only.
Most failed walls were providing necessary structural retention, drainage and /or landscaping and can be costly to demolish and re-build to appropriate standards. It is imperative that homeowners and builders alike understand what makes a boulder wall both attractive and durable before choosing a masonry provider. Having an excavator and a large quantity of stone is not enough! As a rule, if your prospective contractor cannot demonstrate or discuss correct methods for splitting large stone they are probably a poor choice.
