Dry Laid Free Standing Walls
Often referred to as “farmers’ walls” or “property walls”, cemented free-standing 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 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 a 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”.
