Rock Walls Rock / stone walls offer a unique look that ties in well with other natural outdoor landscape elements. Natural rocks / stones have excellent durability due to their natural properties and capabilities. Our professional landscape wall installation will enhance the value of your home and serve both function and aesthetic. All of our rock and stone wall are tailored to the customer’s budget, needs and desires. The natural rock wall units are constructed with building techniques, gravity and friction to hold them in place. All of our retaining walls include concrete block walls are constructed as mortarless systems. The primary benefits of a mortarless retaining wall compared with a poured concrete wall or mortared wall are; mortarless walls are designed to allow for the release of water which prevents hydrostatic pressure (water pressure). Being that they are dry-stacked without mortar, they have the ability to be much more porous and allow for greater water permeability, which will ultimately extend the life and preserve the structure of the wall. Additionally, mortarless retaining walls allow for movement in the earth without impairing the integrity or the structure of the wall. A poured concrete wall or mortar wall is a rigid system that can crack when the ground moves or heaves. Mortarless retaining wall is a wise choice for the Pacific North West.
Dry-stacked walls are ideal for building garden walls and low retaining walls, small planters, garden borders and raised flowerbeds. There are literally hundreds of different colors and varieties of stone including sandstone, limestone, granite, mica schist, quartz, slate and so on. Dry stack stones are available in regular shape such square, rectangular and irregular shapes. A dry stack wall is usually built no more than 3ft high. The larger stones might be able to build up to 4ft. For a higher wall, a rockery wall or block wall is recommended.
Rockery Walls: rockery walls are constructed of natural rocks in irregular shape, sometimes called quarry rock and usually available in basalt, granite, lynch creek and limestone. Mostly available in colors such as brown, gray, dark gray, dark green and white gray. Sometimes rock is referred to as a half-man, one-man rock, or two- man rock. Rock is measured by how many men it would take to muscle it into position by using a 8-foot bar or lever. Because men come in different sizes and strengths, a half-man rock can be anywhere between a small rock and a rock weighing up to 150 pounds; a one- man rock can weigh upwards of 250 pounds; and a two-man rock can weigh upwards of 500 pounds. A half-man and one- man rock can be used for a wall up to 4ft high. Like dry stack walls, rockery walls are ideal for building garden retaining walls, planters, garden borders and raised flowerbeds. For larger projects, a one or two-man rock or larger is typically engineered and constructed to handle the load of larger slopes.
