Hearting the Heart of the Wall

Hearting also referred to as packing are the heart of a proper dry laid stone construction. Hearting are the stone placed large to small to fill your voids. This keeps your structure nice and tight avoiding implosion or collapsing.
A few key notes: Pack as you go, packing should always be done by large to small stones PLACED, never use gravel it will never lock in, packing should never be taller then your front or back stone, frustrated and can't find that magic stone? Stop and pack let your mind unwind.
