What is Rip Rap?
Rip rap is natural rock placed along shorelines, stream-beds, bridge foundations, pilings, steep slopes and other shoreline structures to prevent water erosion. Also known as shot rock, rock armor or rubble, it is commonly used throughout Florida due to its natural beauty, strength and layer of protection it provides. At Wood Dock & Seawall, our professionals install stone that is natural looking, long lasting and environmentally friendly. The rocks utilized are sized from 6 to 12 inches in diameter to ensure the eroded area is covered and the rocks remain permanently in place.
What are the Benefits of Rip Rap?
From protecting land from erosion to providing a natural habitat for wildlife, the benefits include:
- Helps Prevent Erosion – Rip rap absorbs waves coming in towards your property reducing erosion.
- Is Aesthetically Pleasing – Rip rap is aesthetically pleasing. The stones give your shoreline a finished look.
- Looks Natural – Rip rap arranged along the shoreline looks natural.
- Creates a Natural Habitat for Wildlife – Provides a habitat for marine life and is commonly used by oysters, crabs and fish.
- Requires Less Upkeep and Maintenance – The stones used are self-adjusting to settlement and movement.
- Repairs are Easier – If minor damage occurs, it can be repaired easily by replacing stones.
