Rocky Mountain High

Our best friend is rocking the dry stack....
They surround themselves with rocks in the home and yard, and this compliments living with textures of Fir, pine and snow. These top two photos show these hand picked beauties accented with the green lichen and do some support work for the Colorado Red Flagstone retaining wall.

The little bench is workin' the Flintstone's look with the smooth white river rocks as support.

Coping With It

More intricate dry stack using the Swiss Cheese limestone. The jigsaw puzzle that develops as the stacking goes along ends up as an abstract finish. This informal stacking gets it's strength and finishing touch with the coping.
