Pillars | Piers
These can be built either square or round in shape and generally are built to adorn your home and property, as an accent on a stone wall or to serve a structural function. They can even be built to help protect your mailbox. Adding a pillar or column is a nice way to welcome guests to your property. To achieve a formal entrance, stones will be hand cut and chiseled for tight fits. This will give you clean lines and sharp corners. To achieve a more rustic effect, stones are set naturally, not hand cut. This will give your corners more variance and more roundness to the stones. In a structural situation, pillars help to hold up your front porch or maybe even a side of your home. We have built all the above, in many situations.
