Drystone Designs – A Natural Art

In a corner of the garden


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.


Most of the stone we use is weathered sandstone, removed from agricultural fields after ploughing. Every year many tons of stone are brought up and lie weathering – and this produces the mosaic of colours seen in one of our features.
