Our dry stack stone walls are constructed in various ways. Our preferred method is to hide the mortar toward the back of the stones. This gives us a very natural stone look, without having to see much of a mortar joint.
These dry stack walls are mostly decorative, yet we can use them to retain smaller rises. If a taller retaining wall is necessary we can use larger stones, or, we can upgrade to a boulder or rock wall.
Natural stone walls also work well in our rockscaping projects. We often use them in conjunction with boulders and stone steppers. We use them for raised beds in patios, raised swimming pool copings, fire pits, etc.
