Boulder Wall Construction
All State Companies will design and build, help maintain, or help restore your boulder wall.
There are many reasons why boulder walls are an excellent choice for your landscaping needs. In addition to using them to create an attractive and functional outdoor area (patios, pools, gardens, shorelines and playgrounds), they also help with uneven settlement, run-off, erosion, slope stabilization and control.
What are the causes of erosion?
Boulder walls can stop erosion, which is the process by which the surface of the Earth gets worn down. Erosion can be caused by natural elements such as wind and glacial ice. But anyone who has ever seen a picture of the Grand Canyon knows that nothing beats the slow steady movement of water when it comes to changing the Earth. Boulder walls are a perfect solution to your erosion problems.
What are the causes of soil erosion?
Soil compaction, low organic matter, loss of soil structure, poor internal drainage, salinization and soil acidity problems are other serious soil degradation conditions that can accelerate the soil erosion process. This Fact sheet looks at the causes and effects of water, wind and tillage erosion on agricultural land.
