Dry Stone Walling & Facing
Dry stone walling is the construction of free standing walls with no mortar. They stand through a combination of good foundation, correct construction method and friction. They are an intrinsic part of the british countryside, used by farmers and landowners as boundary walls.
We offer repair or rebuilding of exisiting walls as well as bespoke new build projects.
Dry-stone facing is similar to freestanding walls but retain soil on a bank or terrace. They are an important part of hedge-banks in the south west of England and can make sloping ground in a garden into usable flat space through terracing.
Local stone is used where possible to retain landscape character. In contemporary gardens, many types of stone can be brought in through good connections with quarries and stone merchants.
Mortared Natural Stone Walling
We offer lime or cement mortared walling. New Walls, re-pointing and repair. Stone faced block work is a practical solution where drystone construction is not adequate or suitable. This can be hidden mortar which looks dry or pointed joints.
