Stone wall build through the stages

Here are some photos of the wall we put up for our house name sign. As there are all old walls around our site, we went with a similar stone wall build. It is now the main feature of our new shrub beds.
Just click on any of the photos below to see them in larger format

Foundations dug out
Foundations poured - and a rough idea of how the sign will look

Finally underway

How high to have the wall
Work continuing

Protection from our lovely weather
The reverse view

Again more protection needed

The wall is now finished - just need to get soil and plants in to show it all off
Finally all potted up

We are very please with how it looks - just need to finish cleaning up now after the builder - they do like to leave their messes behind!! We are also going to put in some lights (you may have seen cables in a few of the photos) to shine up on the name plate.


  1. You have a nice garden focal point I must say. Enjoy the day, looks like a nice one.

  2. Your wall looks great! Everywhere I see beautiful stone walls, making me want some of my own!
