Stone walls… a decorative and functional design.

Posted on June 9, 2014

Stone walls have been in use in this country since the early 1700s. Colonists used large field stones to build walls to divide property. But stone walls have been used for thousands of years. Many of these stone walls can be found in existence today through Lexington, Concord, and surrounding towns, but many homeowners are looking to have these walls built into their landscaping in Newton MA and the surrounding towns.

Beyond dividing property lines, what else are they used for?

First off, they are one of the most simple of masonry constructions. In the changing elevations of our properties in New England, stone walls are needed to hold back the soil. Without these retaining stone walls, soil would erode and eventually slide. They provide a sturdy reinforcement to our landscape and design. Landscaping in Newton MA can be tricky, as many sections of town are built on hilly terrain. These areas will require retaining walls, and the aesthetics of stone walls fit right in.
