What is dry stone walling?

Dry stone walls do not require any binding material such as mortar or cement to hold them together. Rather their strength comes through the correct selection and placement of stones. They also offer improved drainage compared to brick or mortared walls, particularly when used for retaining walls or raised beds. As well as being an environmentally-friendly building material, a well-built wall will require minimum maintenance and should last for dozens of years. The material is extremely versatile and strong.
