Workshop Level: 2. Up to 12 participants with Certified instructors Brian Post and Benjamin Maron. Open to those who have taken at least one Level 1 workshop (or are experienced wallers) . $273
Saturday April 8, 2017
Here in the North East, many of the walls people are building are retaining walls. While all the principals of a free standing wall apply there are additional rules and methods to follow when building retaining walls. The focus needs to be on a sound structure that will last for generations. The stone may be round field stone or flatter ledge stone. The rules and principals learned here can be applied to all retaining walls whether hand-built or built with large stones and equipment.
Learn tips and techniques for structurally sound retaining walls.
