Stream Renovation for Yard Drainage
Stream bridges with Alverson boulders and granite slabs.
Custom Yard Drainage Solution
This property had a mosquito-infested swamp area due to a bridge that was falling apart and clogging up proper yard drainage. The failing structure was disrupting a natural stream from flowing and causing flooding problems during rain. Furthermore, the land around the stream had become overgrown with weeds and vines and needed an overhaul.
The area was unusable, and we wanted to design an area where the homeowner could cross the stream and enjoy the area without disturbing the natural environment too much. Edible plants and a vegetable garden were desired.
We demolished the old concrete bridge and built a new one using Alverson boulders and a large bridge stone.
This allowed the stream to flow freely again and prevented flooding. Two smaller bridges were installed along the stream with granite slabs to provide several access points for the customer along the lengthy stream. A water source was also installed.
The surrounding area was cleared and planted with edibles such as Figs, Apple trees, strawberries, etc., as well as various natural species of plants. The whole area was finished off with wood chips to keep a more naturalized look.
