Our current project which we started in December 2010 had a failing mortared wall, in 3 different styles as it ran 170' down the driveway .
We went to Montana and selected an Argolyte/ Slate which we could get for a fair price, in a wide range of sizes that did not come on a pallet, that had a great color range, and was appropriate for dry stone walling.
Dry stone walling is really one of my favorite elements in a landscape. Not only does it relieve tension from surrounding architecture, it continues to give back in it's timeless pattern language, reveal the relationship of the mason and material, and last for centuries.
