What is shoreline riprap?
In short, rip rap is a system of rocks that minimizes shoreline erosion caused by water and ice. Properly installed, shoreline rip rap can last a lifetime and adds beauty to any river & lakefront property.
What type of stones are used for riprap restoration?
Shoreline ripraps can be constructed of granite, limestone, fieldstone, and more. However, Koch Kuts works almost exclusively with fieldstone riprap because it is durable, eco-friendly, and aesthetically pleasing – fieldstone is smooth, round, and available in a selection of earthy tones. Additionally, there are some downsides to granite, limestone, and other options like traprock or concrete.
Do you have photos of your work?
Absolutely! Check out our Shoreline Before & After Gallery to see some of the shoreline rip raps we’ve replaced and how great the restorations/installations turned out. We work hard on every shoreline restoration we undertake and are proud to share the results. Our project photos also show how well our landscape design services enhanced many of the lakeshore restorations.
