Building a Dry Stone Wall

Installation Instructions

Building a Dry Stonewall
Building with a wall with stone is beautiful and will not deteriorate like some other materials. This tutorial describes how to build a “dry” stonewall… one without mortar holding the stones together. Because individual stones are able to shift as seasons change, there’s no need to build a foundation below the frost line. Even so, building with stone requires a substantial commitment of time and effort, but the reward is substantial. Be careful and wear a back-support belt since building a stonewall involves repetitive lifting.
