dry stacked stone on front of house and retaining wall?
Has anyone here used dry stacked stone on a portion of the front of their house? I love the look and I am trying to decide on a rock that I like. Also, we have a retaining wall that runs the length of our house in the front. I think the rock on the house and the retaining wall should be the same rock...I think it would just look nicer. The retaining wall will actually face our house, not out to the road. DH says that in order to get a sturdy wall we should have a concrete wall poured and then face it with the rocks. And he continues to say that using the dry stack method would be very costly. Any ideas, pictures or opinions on dry stacked stone and retaining walls would be very appreciated. Thanks to you all!
