Wilhelm Landscapes is the premiere seawall installation company in Northern Lower Michigan. We have done many seawalls on both East and West Bays. These projects require authorization from the Army Corp. of Engineers. Wilhelm Landscapes is ready to walk you through this process. As part of our permitting service, Wilhelm can obtain all of the permits needed for your seawall project. Check out this 2018 project on East Bay. Most of Wilhelm Landscapes projects begin with a search for seawall construction companies in Northern Lower Michigan. Wilhelm Landscapes prides itself on being on the top of this search. This is because we have consistently built the finest boulder seawalls for years. It is very common for a neighbor to stop and ask “Who did your seawall?”. Many of our clients are just down the lake from ones we had constructed previously. The word gets around! The choice for seawalls in Northern Lower Michigan is Wilhelm Landscapes.
Our stone steps are often 5.5″ high. This is a very comfortable size for the elderly and children. They are also available at 7″ high which is still below the height of a normal home step. These steps also act as a perfect level support for a dock installation. They also come in dimensional or irregular shapes and 4 different colors.
All of our project include boulders which we harvest ourselves. The entire project is artfully constructed to create the most appealing configuration. These beautiful boulders are also used to build most of our seawalls and retaining walls.
It all starts with design. We work with your ideas and our experience to create a design that explains the elements in full color so that you can see what you are investing in. This is often more accessible than a blue print or a quick sketch.
Through out my 30 years in the landscape design build field, I’ve learned many ways to avoid redoing a hardscape. Making sure common issues are handled 1st. Proper drainage is #1, shoreline erosion protection/seawalls as needed, retaining walls #3, pathways and patios #4, building of raised planting gardens w/ good soils #5 and a great planting plan.
Let Wilhelm Landscape help you with your landscape design needs. The design fee we become free of charge w/ an installation from one of our great skilled crews.
We will make your landscape great!

A vinyl seawall is a major improvement to your property, and it’s something that requires good planning. You will be adding a structure that will be protecting your land for decades to come, so it’s important to get it right. One of the primary considerations is the material used to construct the seawall.
