Installing a retaining wall can be the perfect way to increase the aesthetic beauty of your property. The placement and purpose of your Seattle retaining wall can help to regulate water flow throughout your property and make your area more enjoyable and functional.
At B&D Rockeries, we specialize in working with homeowners that need custom retaining walls to fit a difficult or specific landscape. Our team of rockery retaining wall builders is familiar with different retaining wall construction methods to ensure we deliver a strong, durable wall. We offer our licensed services throughout Everett, Seattle, Snohomish, and King County, as well as Mukilteo and Bothell-Mill Creek.
Our Seattle retaining wall experts are familiar with installing all types of retaining wall rocks in the Seattle area, especially the frequently chosen non-cemented options. We are familiar with cemented walls as well.
We find our best and most beautiful rocks from local quarries. Because we know all of the local quarries, we are able to find the colors and sizes necessary to match your style and color preferences for the retaining walls at reasonable, competitive prices.
The unique thing about quarry rocks is that they are a limited resource, so finding a rock that matches your home is something you can treasure. Once the quarry is all used up, your wall is something that cannot be replicated with other rocks.
Retaining Wall Sizes
There are many different sizes of rocks and blocks that are available when deciding on the design of your retaining wall. Here is a glance at some of their qualities and benefits.
Half Man, One Man
Half man and one man rocks are ideal when constructing a small wall. Normally under four feet tall, builders will often use one man rocks for the foundation and build the additional top layers with smaller rocks. Installing these retaining walls can be a bit more labor intensive, which often means these projects turn out to be a bit more expensive.
Two Man, Three Man
These rocks are used more frequently in retaining walls. Their size makes them suitable for numerous kinds of walls, and they are easier to manipulate with machines than smaller rocks. Because machines make manual labor easier, these walls can actually cost much less than other walls.
Boulders are not used as frequently in retaining walls, but you will see them occasionally. Boulders come in all shapes and sizes.
Knowing how different kinds of rocks are meant to fit together is what makes our services so valuable. Poorly installed retaining walls will fall apart after only a few years. Our staff at B&D Rockeries are skilled at properly constructing retaining walls to be sturdy and secure for years to come.
Retaining Wall Placement
Depending on the purpose of the retaining wall, its placement will define its success. The landscape and water flow through your property will factor into what kind of wall is built and where it is placed on your property. Our professional services can help you analyze your property and decide on its final location. We service customers throughout Snohomish and King County, as well as Everett, Seattle, Mukilteo, and Bothell and Mill Creek.
Cost of a Retaining Wall
The final cost of your retaining wall is entirely dependent upon the size of your wall, the design of the wall, and the kind of rock used. Our staff can help you analyze the materials and resources you will need to install your retaining wall to help give you an estimate on the final cost.
