Frequently Asked Question

Why is it called a Dry Stone Wall?

People believe that the name comes from the fact that no mortar is used. However it is in fact called a dry stone wall as the angling of the two faces ensures that the middle of the wall does not get wet when it rains! 

Why have a Dry Stone Wall?

As well as being a traditional craft and some would say an art form, dry stone walls are hard wearing and long lasting. They can be used as either boundary walls or retaining walls. The Walls which I build are designed to fit in with their surroundings, and with the proper after care will stand the test of time. If you have a wall which just needs repair I will endeavour to use as much of the original stone as possible to maintain the appearance of your dry stone wall.

What Stone is used?

In this area traditional Cotswold Stone is ordinarily used to ensure walls are in keeping with surrounding buildings and  landscapes. However should you prefer a different style or colour please let me know and we can discuss this

How much will it cost?

There is no exact answer to this question as it depends on the size and height of the wall, however we price per faced meter. A dry stone wall has two faces and therefore we quote accordingly. Please contact us for a quote
