If you want to have a traditional dry-stacked Stone Wall constructed at your Asheville, NC home; the main ingredient is STONE.
Not just the face stones holding up your stone terrace wall, free-standing wall or roof. Nor their adjoined structural “True” stones anchoring that face to the depth of the wall. But intentionally placed HEART stones: spreading out PSI behind the wall, and the clean gravel beneath it.
All too often walls are laid straight on or against dirt, or backfilled with gravel, sometimes full of sediment or “finds”. Influenced by frost-heave and hydrostatic pressure; this creates a fluid mass, holds water and eventually erodes the foundation beneath the stone wall.
The benefit of dry-stacked stone construction; is that is stays DRY after it rains. This ensures it lasts for your family in Asheville for generations to come.
