Creating Handcrafted Walls from Natural Stone
A centuries-old technique that lasts a lifetime
Add to the appeal of your landscaping project with a handcrafted dry stone wall. These beautiful walls are built stone by stone, with no mortar used to cement the stones together. While the concept sounds intimidating to some, our specialized teams are well-versed in dry stone construction. The interlocking stones form a stable wall, with load-bearing stones keeping the wall firmly in place.
Not only do dry stone walls represent a much more aesthetically-appealing appearance to interlock products, but they're also better suited for climates like ours in Canada. Because no mortar is used to lock the stones in place, the wall can shift with the earth as it freezes and thaws throughout the year. There are countless examples around the globe of dry stone walls that have lasted for centuries, thanks to this innovative construction method.
Why Choose Dry Stone Construction?
Unlike highly processed cement, dry stone walls use natural materials that give your wall a lower embedded energy value. Furthermore, these walls are built without power tools like saws. This green approach ensures your landscape project doesn't needlessly expend energy and cause pollution in the immediate environment.
Few structural features represent the same visual appeal of a handcrafted stone wall. We select stones that are structurally-sound and beautiful, creating a unique pattern that serves as a stunning design feature that is both functional and attractive. Forget ugly block concrete and choose a wall that complements the overall design of your landscape.
Walls that Last a Lifetime
Concrete inevitably needs to be replaced with time, as cracks develop due to constant freezing and a shifting foundation. With a dry stone wall, your investment remains in perfect condition for years to come. Our mortar-free construction method gives the stones room to move and shift, allowing the wall to naturally align itself with the earth.
