What is Rip Rap?
Rip rap is natural rock placed along shorelines to prevent water erosion. Also known as shot rock, rock armor or rubble, it is commonly used throughout Florida. Rip rap has increased in popularity due to its natural beauty, strength, and protective properties. Here at Wood Dock & Seawall, the stones we use are natural, long-lasting, and environmentally friendly. We use stones sized from 6 to 12 inches to ensure the rocks stay permanently in place .
