Project Finished - Wyman Park Dell - Baltimore 2010

Before patched together wall
The Dry Stone Conservancy from KY working with Allied Construction took on this massive undertaking in the Summer of 2010. The wall was a total of 1400 linear feet on average 3 ft high Butler stone retaining wall. Twelve Certified Dry Laid Masons from, MD, NY, MI, NC, KY working for 2 months to finish this amazing Dry Stone Project. 

We worked on 6 ft sections at a time. Once we finished our section we would moved down to the last waller. Starting the process all over again. 

These are a few of the sections I'm proud to say I built!. 

The darker stones are from the old wall section

Cap stones are a min of 8 inch thick weighing in at a min of 200 pounds per stone.
