About Dry Stone Walling
Dry stone walling is one of the most ancient methods of construction and has been used worldwide for centuries. For the construction of agricultural walling for livestock and cattle to human dwellings, religious buildings and monuments such as the pyramids in egypt. Dry stone construction is a building method which does not rely on the use of mortar to bind the stones together. Dry stone structures are stable because of their traditional and unique construction method, which is characterized by the presence of a load-bearing facade of carefully selected interlocking stones. Dry stone technology is best known in the context of wall construction, but dry stone artwork, buildings, bridges, and other structures also exist.
A dry stone wall is constructed from stones without mortar to bind them together. As with any dry stone construction, the structural integrity arises from compressional forces and the interlocking of the stones. Such walls are used in building construction, as field boundaries, and on steep slopes as retaining walls for terracing.Visit our Dry Stone Walling Gallery
