Working with stone is a New England tradition that goes way back to colonial days. Building a traditional wall one is a wonderful way to reconnect with that past, get some excercise, be outdoors, satisfy an artistic impulse, and leave a lasting legacy. If you order stone for delivery, make sure it wasn’t strip-mined or stolen. This is far more common than you might think.
Building your own wall, is easy with satisfaction guaranteed if you:
- Get your stone from an ethical source
- Construct your wall following simple rules, and then give it that
- Time tarnished look to speed up the aging process. The alternative is to wait.
