Fieldstone Retaining Wall Design Walloon Lake Michigan

Classic fieldstone retaining walls

This combination of poured walls clad with granite veneer and dry stacked granite walls helped to shore up an area that needed an egineered wall and also keep the site loose and charming

Big or small, retaining walls are all about the details. This cabin on the banks required a small retaining wall to avoid fill being placed over existing tree roots which would have caused a slow decline and eventual death of the trees. Stone was carefully chosen and installed to match the fieldstone veneer on the home.

We believe that fieldstone retaining walls look best with mixed sizes. Plantings and turf should soften and complement the walls like at this home located on the shores of lake Charlevoix
