You ever notice in June there is always a swoon…..that just makes me want to rest and relax. But my masters, they take advantage of the picture perfect days! They even want to build walls, now that is crazy. Here are three natural stones that make a nice dry stack wall.
- Moss Rock ~ A lava product from Northern California. This is available various sizes; minis, headsize, double headsize and boulders. The most economical choice and most common in our area. It pairs well with the cold water canyon flagstone, Mexican pebble red and small deco bark.
- Oregon Eagle ~ This angular accent rock is brown with gold and gray under tones, and is from the state of Oregon. This wall pairs well with Oregon eagle patio flagstone, Mexican pebble buff, and brown bark.
- Rocky Mountain Granite ~ Is also from our northern neighbors in Oregon. It is a salt and pepper granite with hints of gold. A wall made of this would be well accented by slate 3″ minus, Mexican pebble black 1×2, and black bark.
Now in building a dry stack wall, use 25 sqft per ton coverage formula as an approximate calculation. Always make a footer with crushed rock, and re-enforce with a roll of our weed barrier. You will love the results. Happy Digging!
