Palm Harbor community seawall upgrades are par for the course
PINELLAS COUNTY, FL – A local golf course recently received a much needed overhaul of their retaining walls and drainage on the golf course at Highland Lakes retirement community in Palm Harbor. When Highland Lakes needed to replace their wood retaining walls on three of their holes, they turned to Gibson Marine Construction to do the job.
The golf course project consisted of replacing the wood retaining walls on three different holes with 800-feet of ESP 4.1 vinyl sheet piling, wood cap and anchoring system. Gibson Marine Construction uses a high performance vinyl and composite sheet piling providing protection against corrosion, erosion and UV damage from the sun. A retaining wall, also known as a bulkhead or seawall, keeps the water from eroding the soil back into the water. The project took less than 4 weeks to complete, and was constructed on-time and on-budget, a standard for all of Gibson’s projects.
The team at Gibson Marine Construction also re-routed the drainage system by adding drain and catch pipes, stabilized the greens and t-boxes and sodded one of the holes.
The Highland Oaks Homeowners Association Facilities superintendent is so pleased with the work they have completed, they have recently contracted Gibson for future work.
