When this housing community was in the initial stages of development, Southview Design worked with a builder and engineers to design and create a pond with waterfalls in the community park. The project took eight days.
Right next to our water feature is the retention pond.The pond/water feature is approximately four feet deep and 100' x 120’. At one end, we installed a 12-foot boulder retaining wall to level out the area for the pond/waterfalls. As the grasses and other plant material filled in, and the water in the retention pond rose, the look was seamless. A muskrat had other ideas.
He burrowed through the outer boulder wall, and chewed through the plastic and fabric to make his home in-between the walls. Evidence of his work showed up as a portion of the 12-foot high wall started to collapse. Southview Design jumped into repair mode. We had to float materials out over the water in the retention pond in order to repair the damage done by the muskrat. We added chain link barrier in-between the walls to prevent the problem from happening again.
Problem: Wall collapse caused by a muskrat making their home in-between the walls
Solution: Chain link barrier protects boulder wall from future muskrat mischief

The name "Utepils" is a Norwegian word that encapsulates "the longing and anticipation for the first beer enjoyed in the sunshine." With a name like that, this local brewery needed a beer garden to live up to its name.
