Dry Stone Work

Using dry stone construction methods, Touch Stone can create a stone work that appears to have been there forever – weathered and worn at the same time enduring and robust.

In contrast to masonry, dry stone construction does not rely on cement to bind the stone. As Dan Snow explains in his book, In the Company of Stone, gravity is the mortar that holds the walls together for hundreds of years.

When creating a dry stone project, Touch Stone designs not only for function but also with an eye to maintaining the relationship of stone with other natural elements such as sunlight, water, flora and, yes, even, snow.
