Perth – large dry stone retaining wall
After building a small dry stone retaining wall for this client in Perth, i was asked to look at making another larger, wall to retain a bigger earth bank on the property.
In total the walls run for 43m with most of it at 1m to 1.2m tall. 37 tonnes of new stone went into the construction – more than 500 wheel-barrow loads! I also used another six tonnes of old stone dug out of the bank. There was about 40 days of work in the job all told.
The stone is Swinton Rubble from the Hutton Stone Company.
