Serious flooding can also be a problem when your property is not protected by a properly constructed seawall.
What Kind of Seawall Do You Need for Greenwich Ct?
The kind of seawall that you will need for your Greenwich, Ct property will depend on the force of the sea exerted on it. For properties exposed to the maximum forces of the sea, best approach is large concrete blocks set down to bedrock or deep in the soil. A sufficient option for areas with average forces is a seawall made of rocks and boulders. For minimum wave forces riprap is a good option. Riprap is a collection of concrete along with large and small rocks. An attractive feature of riprap is that you can plant these areas. In addition, riprap can be used on the seaward side of a concrete block seawall to reduce undercutting by action of the waves.
