Finished the boulder wall thursday, and was pleased with the results. Walls of this type a a great alternative to traditional masonry walls because of the lower cost and shorter time to construct. To build the equivalent wall from stacked stone would have taken at least twice the money and probably four times as long.
I think we made a huge improvement over the previous wall and steps.
We finished the drystone wall in Daisy Ridge last week and we were very happy with how it turned out.
Next project was to use a small excavator to remove a wall and steps that were failing and replace them with boulders supplied by Solid Ground grading.
Josh used a jackhammer to remove the concrete steps.
Next I had to pick out a boulder and start building.
Finished photos coming soon!
