If you have water on your Idaho property, you need to have a way to keep that water from eating away at the rest of your land. While there are plenty of available options for this purpose, a riprap retaining wall is one of the most effective. North Idaho Pavers is experienced in the installation of riprap walls, and we’ll be happy to handle this project for you in a professional manner. Take a moment today to get in touch and learn more about this approach to controlling water and why it might be the right pick for your situation.
Even if you aren’t familiar with the term “riprap”, you have certainly seen this type of waterfront previously. A riprap shoreline is one that has been piled up with rocks strategically to create a nicely defined edge for the water and to limit erosion. While a riprap shoreline will look like it was created casually or even naturally, there is actually quite a bit of knowledge and experience that goes into creating one of these successfully.
For North Idaho properties that are along the shore of a lake, or even that have a pond of their own, riprap is an excellent option to consider. Some of the many benefits of using this strategy include –
You would be forgiven for thinking that anyone with a bit of equipment and a willingness to work could create a riprap wall. After all, it’s little more than an arrangement of stones along a shoreline – how hard could it be?
In reality, this is not a job suitable for a DIY project. For one thing, the soil under the location where the rocks will be placed needs to be prepared prior to creating the wall, and the slope needs to be checked to confirm that it is not too steep for this application. A layer of fabric is also often used to help with the erosion control and to prevent too much plant growth from coming up through the rocks.
Since your new riprap wall is likely to be in place on your property for generations to come, it only makes sense to get it right from the start.
