Vancouver Island —Victoria, BC, in particular— is home to an exceptional amount of mortared stone retaining walls. You cannot venture into a residential neighborhood without observing at least half a dozen of these works of art. When built properly with the right mortar mixture, ideal drainage, and optimal capping of the stone wall, they will remain standing for decades to come. However, and unfortunately, this is not always the case, as a good portion of phone calls I receive pertain to faulty construction techniques and applications which lead to structural failures.

The foundations on which these walls are built are the key to longevity. A good working knowledge of how to direct water flow, soil types and how they correspond with drainage, along with specific mortar mixtures for each aspect of the wall, are also essential when it comes to ensuring the walls lifespan.

If you have any questions in regards to your rock retaining wall or are in need of a quote for the procurement of one, please, contact us today. We possess extensive knowledge when it comes to all things masonry and landscaping. If we cannot use whatever stone is present on the property to construct a long-standing stone wall, we can help you obtain the necessary materials at low-cost in order to do so.
