Dry Stone Walling originated in the ancient times when stone walls were built without using mortar. These walls were built to mark territories and build boundaries. The rustic appearance of these walls continues to charm people which is evident from its popularity and presence in several outdoor projects.
In modern times, the stones are bonded with the help of glue. This ensures strength and stability while retaining the authenticity of the stones with their texture style. The load of stones relies on gravity and expert workmanship as the stones are fitted in an interlocking pattern. A natural gravel base and putting the stones together keeps the wall in place. These walls not only look organic but also lend an unparalleled craggy charm.
The technique of making Dry Stone Walls in the past was successful which is apparent from their long life. Some Dry Stone Walls still exist and the method is still practiced countryside. These walls are attractive and save time and money. You do not have to fret over sticking each stone with mortar or engage expensive labour. Stacking the stones to form a Dry Stone wall is quite simple. At Stone Depot, the walling stones are glued in fixed patterns that help reduce man hours and cost.
