One of the oldest methods for constructing walls, fences, and loadbearing facades, dry stone walls have been used in Australia for as long as 6000 years. Across the country, the method has become embedded in our national construction culture as a result of its strength, durability, and distinctive aesthetic. However, traditional dry stone construction is not without its limitations.
In their new whitepaper, A Fresh Look at Dry Stone Walling: The Emergence of Modular Construction, decorative stone wall experts DécoR Stone explore how modular construction has made traditional dry stone walling a perfect fit for contemporary projects.
To begin, the whitepaper explains the basics of traditional loose stone dry stone wall construction, comparing this with the characteristics of contemporary modular construction.
