Restoration of ancient retaining wall

  • Otley, England, United Kingdom

 To Say "I'm happy" with my new circular olive tree drystone wall is a major understatement! How Tracey and Jason make a pile of random stones into a stunning focal point is simply amazing! Their stunning stonework has inspired me to re-design my garden and incorporate as much of their work as possible."

Andy Robinson - Arthington

 Made a great job of extensive repairs to our drystone wall. Helpful friendly service. Highly recommended."

Lynne Newsome - Norwood

 We highly recommend Living Stone Dry Stone Walling :-) Last year they built a wall in our private driveway and we asked them back recently to build a garden wall using our stone from an original crumbling wall. Jason and Tracey are a very hard working, talented and really nice couple with a good eye for the natural beauty in stone and the colour tones that come out of it -born to be stonemasons! It was also a pleasure to meet their 2 beautiful dogs Forest and Tucker"
