From ancient Rome to the modern home, the benefits of a dry-laid stone retaining wall haven’t changed for thousands of years. They are strong, durable, and designed to stand up to a wide variety of climactic conditions. This makes them a popular feature that homeowners truly appreciate.
Dry-laid stone retaining walls rely on gravity and friction to keep them in place. This makes them easy to install and it gives you plenty of latitude to create patterns and flow quickly and efficiently. Suitable for use for purely decorative reasons, or for holding back soil on hilly landscapes, they are as versatile as they are reliable. In fact, they’re more reliable because of the absence of mortar that can chip/crack over time.
Most importantly, they can be built form practically any type of stone available. This makes matching the retaining wall to the home or surrounding landscape as simple as picking the right stone.
