This wall is at the front of a fantastic country home and is a key focal point to the gardens running along side the entrance way. We were asked to restore the wall and include an opening allowing access from the top to lower lawns.
Tree routes, land movement and poor internal structure had allowed this wall to shift sideways away from the raised lawn (shown on the left in these photos) and to fall into dilapidated state.
Rebuilding the wall and creating a new passage way from the top to lower lawn.
The 1st section of this restoration complete.
Moving onto the next section, wall stripped out and being rebuilt. The rebuild photo shows the through stones being placed which are imperative to the walls stability tying together the stones and distributing the weight.
Third section stripped out, this section had shifted the most and required the path to be dug back to curve around the back of the flower bed and flow back to the corner pillar and gate.
The wall is retaining in the bottom section so additional throughs and long stones going into the wall are used.
The finished project:
