String Lines & Batter Frames

This workshop is all about how to build and use guides for dry stone walling. We will show you different methods and materials to build batter frames for a variety of situations. Participants will split up into small groups to practice various techniques. Learn tips and tricks for correctly using string lines and how to prevent common errors. Learn how to determine the appropriate dimensions for the walls, correct batter angle, and what to do for special features and unusual circumstances.

This workshop is intended for wallers who have taken one or more prior workshops, are level 1 or higher certified, or have experience building stone walls. This workshop is intended for those wallers looking to take their stone work to the next level.

This workshop is great to take in lead up to any certification test, or to advance your skill and speed for complex projects.

Licensed Landscape Architects can receive 7.5 LA CES credits for participating in this workshop.

Upcoming Retaining Wall Workshops:

Batter Frame Workshop (1 Day, Outdoor) – April 28, 2018 – Dummerston, VT

Proper set up and use of batter frames and string lines is a real challenge for many wallers. We continually hear from examiners that poor use of string lines is one of the biggest reasons that wallers fail certification tests. You will learn multiple ways to build frames and use string lines to improve the efficiency of your building process and quality of the walls you build.
