Boulder Retaining Walls

Boulder Retaining Walls Using Broadmoor Stone

Boulder retaining walls have been a popular retaining wall choice for the past quarter-century. Granite boulders are excavated from properties at the base of Cheyenne Mountain in Colorado Springs. The mostly-rounded rocks range in size from 4″ to 48″ diameter. The stone color ranges from light gray to light pink to beige. The rounded shape of this rock and neutral color makes it appealing to many homeowners. Stacked boulder walls allow moisture to drain through the walls and alleviate pressure from subsurface drainage that can cause other types of retaining walls to fail. The weight of the boulder retaining walls stone, along with proper construction techniques that include a proper batter, creates a durable and long-lasting retaining wall. Our Colorado Springs retaining walls also utilize a durable and long lasting porous landscape fabric behind the walls. This allows moisture to filter through but doesn’t let the soil erode through the stones.
