Directing Storm Water Away from Foundation

To prevent water from entering a basement area, fine grading can direct the water to run away from the foundation of the home. Regularly check your downspouts to be sure they are clear of obstructions.

Preventing Erosion

Designing landscape mounds and retaining walls is an effective way to control erosion on your property. It can be as simple as incorporating a mound of dirt or as extensive as building an interlocking masonry retaining wall.

A retaining wall is a structure that holds back soil or rock from a building, structure or area. Retaining walls prevent downslope movement or erosion and provide support for vertical or near-vertical grade changes. Aesthetic retaining walls are generally made of masonry, stone, brick or timber.

Walls that support heavy loads or exceed four feet in height require special soil reinforcement and should be professionally designed and installed. Some municipalities may require engineering and special installation techniques for walls shorter than four feet. Check with your local municipality before designing or constructing your new retaining wall. Our site managers are available to assist you with your project.

PONDS - For pleasure or water management

Establishing a pond or restoring a stream bed can improve the environment for the future. Again, proper design and construction is most important. Pond construction should start with a meeting with your local Conservation Agency. The second step is approval from your local municipality. Once a design is approved, B.R. Kreider & Son can be contacted to bring your vision to life. Our experienced site managers will assist you in developing your water management plan to reflect the beauty of nature at its best.
