Case Study: Dry-Stack Retaining Wall Rebuild
Before and After
Repair a crumbling stone wall
Remove two cedar shrubs whose roots deform the wall.
Some stones were fallen, others were ready.
Two tall cedars are growing from the wall.
Cutting the Shrubs
Cut into pieces the City will remove.
One of the wall's stones lies in the foreground.
Excavation of Loose Stones
We begin removing loose stones, making the hole bigger.
More stones are taken out than this photo shows.
The bottom stones are re-set, to change their angle.
Some of the earth is removed, set aside.
