DRY STONE WALLING - 2018

Since 2016 Tom has widened his area of work stretching from Herefordshire to Bucks and into Warwickshire. There is continued demand for high quality dry stone walling. The work is as varied as the weather as you will see from the pictures here and on the Previous Work page.

Many of the walls needed to be repaired while others are new. All require the same care and attention to detail. This includes the choice of stone, the appropriate capping and style of building. For some conservation areas these elements are proscribed - eg where other properties in the village have upright copes any new wall may be required to be the same.

Time is spent clearing the site with perhaps some hedge cutting or tree pruning, and then making good at the end of the job, lawn seed will be sown if necessary. All waste material is taken to reclamation/recycling sites for recycling. Green waste is separated from hardcore and goes to composters while stone and other materials are crushed so repairing your wall is a 'Green' thing to do.

Tom can arrange for name plates, carved or engraved stone property names and other accessories, such as gates, as requested. He is also in touch with sources of different stone for capping or paving.

If there is significant vegetation covering your wall it may be best to have it all removed in winter when it will be easier and less time-consuming and in any case should always be done after the end of the nesting season.
