Walls, Walls, And More Stone Walls
At Alliance Stone, we build quality retaining walls that will serve many purposes for our customers. Not only are they functional, but they also offer an aesthetically pleasing look to any yard or landscape. At Alliance Stone, we know that we’re not pioneers in building walls. We honor those that have come before us in being master wall builders.
We give a fist bump to the Chinese who built one of the most popular symbols of China. The Great Wall of China consists of many walls and fortifications. It was originated by Emperor Qin Shi Huang (c. 259-210 B.C) in the third century B.C. It was intended to prevent barbarian nomads from entering into the Chinese empire. It is one of the most extensive wall-building projects ever completed. There also is a claim that it is the only manmade structure that is visible from space.
Hats off to the Romans for their wall-building ingenuity. They built a famous wall in England called Hadrian’s Wall. It was a wall built for defense in the Roman province of Britannia, which commenced being built in AD 122 under the reign of the emperor Hadrian. The wall was 73 miles long. Not including the wall’s ditches, berms and forts, it was formed with squared stone and measured almost 10 feet wide and 16 to 20 feet high.
While we in no way can begin to compare our walls to those that were built centuries ago, we can boast in our products and workmanship. Our customers will agree that we will earn your business for your retaining wall through our excellent customer service and natural stone products and construction.
