May Waller of the Month: Jared Grant

JARED GRANT (Maine) began building stone walls in 2000, and now owns and operates Shangri-La Stoneworks. The majority of his work is dry stone construction, including garden settings, outdoor living spaces, walls, and flatwork. The rocky coast of Maine lends an abundance of quality stone for his projects. Jared holds DSWA-GB Level II Certification and is a certified instructor.

The wall reaches a height of 6’ at its highest point and has alternating copestones.
