Dry Laid Free Standing Walls
Often referred to as "farmers walls" or "property walls" these walls were built, without mortar, by our local ancestors 100-200 years ago! They blanket the region and remind us of a time when farming ruled the land. Locally, we tend to have either a blend of glacial deposits or a sedimentary sandstone/fieldstone. I have rebuilt many of these walls. They can instill a quaint, "country" feeling to your home and landscape if they are stacked informally. Wall building is an testament to what was done years ago. We at Earth and Stone Masonry respect the craft of rebuilding the past and connecting it with the future. Stacking walls is a timeless craft, that can only be done properly by a true "Stone Artist".
