This Natural Stream Bank Stabilization project is the third phase of the overall project.
The third phase of the project included installation of the stream retaining wall stretching from the existing stone wall and running beyond the existing garage approximately 115′ linear feet. We widen the stream towards the bank side and constructed the retaining wall on the street side of the stream approximately 3-5′ in height as needed. The stream bank retaining wall is constructed of manufactured large wall stone system that interlocks between pieces for a solid finished product. The Rosetta Wall is a giant difference between your average landscaping wall. The massive size and weight of the outcropping system makes it visually striking and extremely strong.
Phase 2 included This natural stream restoration project is located in southern Lancaster County, PA. The project consisted of removal of existing deteriorating stream bank supports. We then excavated the banks of the stream to allow for installation of new natural stone retaining walls. The stream was also widened slightly to improve flow and help prevent future flooding. This was an additional phase of a larger project. Below is some pictures of the stream restoration. Below that is another project video from the other phases of this project.
Phase 1 includes installation of a multiple tier terrace boulder wall in the large embankment at the rear of the property. Above the top tier of the boulder walls we be a natural flagstone patio and fire pit with an additional boulder retaining wall around the patio seating area. The fire pit will be a natural stone 48? fire pit with wood burning smokeless fire pit insert. We installed natural stone steps on each tier of the wall for ease of access to the patio. Also included was installation of of a natural stone stepper walking path for access to the top of the embankment into the woods. The project will be finished off with plantings and landscape mulch beds throughout the property. There are other phases of this project still in the planning stages. Stay tuned for more on this project in the near future.
