Chris Tracey: Principals of Dry Stone Walls
February 25, 11:30 am
Dry stone walling is a craft that was brought to America from England. The styles, forms, building techniques and principles, all find their roots in the British Isles. Many of the walls, bridges, foundations, docks and other stone land forms that were constructed 150+ years ago, in New England, still stand today. Our tribute to these unique structures is the work we continue today in good practice. We will explore some of the regional forms that walls take, both as a function of available resources and personal preference, as we as we also explore what holds them together. Presented as part of the Massachusetts Nurserymen & Landscapers Association Winter Symposium and Trade Show For more info on the day’s events, click here.
