We have many varieties of stone walls to choose from, but we mainly use a stone called wedge stone.
Once we come up with a design that you approve of, our crew will dig a 10 inch trench and fill 9 inches of it with crushed stone and tamp it down. This step ensures the wall won’t sink or tilt due to water or frost. We then add in our base layer, in which each stone is painstakingly leveled as it is the most important course of the wall. It takes many hours for us to complete the first level, sometimes even days depending on the length of the wall. The subsequent levels are then placed on top, with the top course glued on with liquid nails for added security.
