Natural Stone Retaining Walls in Pittsburgh

Natural stone retaining walls can fall under three headings:

• Rock retaining walls, which are constructed from found stone, which are stacked into a vertical structure.
• Boulder retaining walls, which are constructed from found boulders and are commonly used for retaining walls of any height. Gaps between boulders can vary greatly, as can the surface.
• Stone retaining walls, which are constructed from rocks that are altered (chiseled, hammered, split, or feathered and wedged) to form tightly constructed walls with small gaps. In this case the wall surface can appear very uniform. Walls can be dry stacked or mortared.

In Western Pennsylvania the natural rock that is prevalent and available is either Limestone or Sandstone. Either of which can be worked to achieve the Rock, Boulder or Stone look for your new stone walls in Pittsburgh from Wichman Landscape Construction. Call us today at (412) 760-8524 for a FREE quote!

Mr. Wichman was very professional and knowledgeable. He replaced our back patio with a beautiful flagstone finish. The old patio was removed and excavated. New base of stone chips tamped down. Mr. Wichman was open to discussion as work was being completed to accommodate alterations in original plans. Work was completed in a very timely manner. The laborers were polite and hard working. They cleaned up very nicely after the project was completed. Thank you for your service manners, for your suggestions and one on one phone conversations.
