Stone wall construction

Add permanence and beauty to your landscape with a stone wall. -- By: Justin Hancock
Slide 1 of 9

Add a decorative hardscape to your landscape

Stone walls have something of a magical quality—when looking at one, you can rarely tell if the wall is a year old or a hundred years old. Popular in areas of New England and Canada, mortarless, or dry, stone walls can be structural or decorative hardscape elements.
Weatherproof and insectproof, stone is available in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors. Whatever your setting or the architectural style of your home, you'll find a type of stone just right for it.
(On the slides, we'll show you how to build a dry stone wall. This project is moderately difficult; depending on your skill level, you probably could build a 4-foot-tall wall that is 15-20 feet long in a weekend.)
