Adry-stack landscape wall is a popular way to integrate natural materials into the design of your outdoor living space. The term “dry-stack” refers to the mortarless look of the assembled stone. Although mortar cen be used during construction of a dry- stack wall, it is hidden near the rear or interior of the wall, so only the natural rock is visible.
COMMON APPLICATIONS The popularity of this method of construction is due in part to its versatility. A dry-stack wall can be integrated into a retaining wall system, used as a low-profile landscape border, or built as a freestanding wall.

This means the face of the wall must batter (lean backward) into the slope it retains, usually about 1/2 to 1 inch per foot. The top course should also pitch slightly
