A beautiful stone wall…yours with just a rock pile, a few tools and this book!

Building Stone Walls tells you all you need to know to build your own sturdy walls. Carefully detailed, clear drawings show the techniques to follow — and how to avoid problems.

Learn here about:

  • wall foundations
  • basic “one-over-two” method
  • chinking “in” or “out”
  • height-to-width formula
  • using lower-quality stone
  • building retaining walls
  • building in gates, fences, and stiles
  • moving stone, boulders.

Excellent example photos show good and poor walls, while the author’s lively text tells you how to build, step by step. Slopes, drainage problems, using rubble — these challenges and more are thoroughly covered.
