The beauty of a dry stack wall

By:

Wednesday, October 20th, 2010

People always ask me about the difference between dry stack walls and mortared walls. The example pictured here is a dry stack wall meaning it is built without mortar or concrete footings. This wall has been built using natural stone. One nice thing about dry stack stone walls is the fact that they can be rebuilt from time to time. This particular wall has been rebuilt four times in thirty years! We rebuilt this wall the summer before last and it has held up quite well. PS If you look closely you can see that we rebuilt this wall with hand tools, look for chisel marks on the top right (no loud gas powered saw on this project).
