Rip Rap Rock

Boulders | Cobble | Rubble | Rip Rap Rock

Many property owners struggle with soil erosion problems, but many different structures and solutions exist to mitigate these issues. Rip rap rock is an effective and affordable method of tackling soil erosion. This material may also be called shot rock or rock armor, and many clients source it from us to protect bridge abutments, streambeds, shoreline structures, pilings, etc., against scour. Call us for the best riprap if you want to stabilize stream banks on your property, create retaining walls in a landscape, or a barrier on steep drop-offs or a driveway.

What Is Rip Rap Rock?

Rock Slope Protection (RSP) is a widely used shore and bank protection method and material. RSP or riprap rock consists of one or multiple rock layers. It’s placed along stream/riverbanks or lake or ocean shores to help prevent erosion.

This commonly used method is ideal for concentrated runoff areas where soil erosion is an issue. Riprap is a layer of massive, interlocked stones that create a barrier on unstable slopes that receive a concentrated water flow or suffer from seepage problems.
