Drystone Designs – A Natural Art

When we were little we had a special place in our garden where we went to get away from it all. Now we’re grown up, we still seek that place - in the design of a particular feature which is attractive, welcoming, sheltered and ours


n the 18th century, stone features and follies were built to add interest and character to a garden. An unusual design would draw the viewer further into the landscape, and when reached would offer a comfortable seat and viewing point.


A Drystone Designs seating feature can be small or large. A small ‘cuillin’ for example will comfortably seat 2, uses about 4 tons of stone, and costs about £2000. A large feature can seat 6 or 7 and might use 12 tons of stone.
