Rene and crew put the finishing touches on the job, installing cobblestone edging and raking out the soil to prepare for hydroseed.
This wall, like many traditional New England stone walls, is dry-laid, meaning that it has no mortar. Dry-laid walls have the flexibility to withstand shifting from freezing and thawing soils. We mortar only the top stones, making the wall a stable seat.
Before the crew started construction, they selected choice stones for the base and top. Now, mossy capstones give thee look of a wall that had been in place for years.
