There is not one single erosion control method that will perform well in every shoreline environment, so therefore each area must be assessed individually. Upon review, if your shoreline is favorable to a Rock Revetment, walls can be built by hand or mechanically placed. Rip Rap surfaces can be custom designed for a Smooth, Moderate or Jagged surface depending on our clients specifications. All projects include backer boards, fill, topsoil and professional landscape finishing behind your new Rip Rap wall.
