Structures built from stacked stone are usually built against a berm or slight hill area. These structures are constructed without mortar, making them a landscaping addition that naturally drains moisture from soil and shifts to accommodate the ground when it freezes. Providing a historic look, stacked stone is a popular construction material for landscaping.
Most stacked stone structures more than three feet high are a bit unstable and must be supported by some form of concrete footing. Some modern stacked stone structures are reinforced with steel rods, concrete rods or wire baskets filled with rocks to ensure that they don’t overturn or slide, causing a risk of personal injury or property damage.
Stacked stones come in a variety of looks. Cut field stone, granite and other rocks are typically used for a uniform, even look. For a more natural look, you can use stones that are uncut but are somewhat flat and angular.
Care must be taken when planning the installation of a stacked stone outdoor structure as their stability depends on the weight and mass of the stones that you build your outdoor structure with. To be on the safe side, you want to use stacked stone in a dry location with a good drainage system in place to assure that groundwater doesn’t exert enough earth pressure to topple your wall.
When built properly, stacked stone is a beautiful, long-lasting landscaping material.
