Stone Walls: Preventing Spring Erosion

Posted on December 2, 2022

Sure, we are just dipping our toes into Winter here in New England. However, it is never too early to prepare for the Spring when snow and frost begin to melt and the Earth becomes a giant mud bath. Between roofs, gutters, and drainage, the season can quickly become a nightmare. While some are fortunate to have no major issues with the integrity of their property, others deal with soil erosion – especially in yards with challenging slopes and hills. In Weston, stone walls have been known to become a life saver when erosion is concerned. 

Whether your property is sloped or flat, stone walls can play a major role in protecting your landscape. Here is a closer look.

Erosion can leave your grass in disarray, causing streams of dirt piles and unsafe surfaces to walk near or on. It can also affect your home’s foundation depending upon the severity and proximity of the erosion. One of the easiest solutions to this problem is a retaining wall, constructed to help shorten the slopes and contain the dirt with concrete, brick, or stone. Stone walls collect water in the soil instead of allowing the soil to be carried off as it would with a lesser incline.

Functionality with appeal. 

Further, stone walls not only help structurally; they offer aesthetic appeal. Stone walls can have different levels and plains to create gardens, stairs, and ledges. Whatever your design preferences, these walls can be created to save your yard from floating away and look beautiful while doing it!
