Pics of raised wall with stone

hmlincaApril 1, 2009

Just got back from meeting with the tile contractor, looking at the hundreds of options on surfacing (stone or tile) for our raised wall at the back of the pool. I want to use stone but it is expensive. I would greatly appreciate anyone that has some pictures of their stone work to use as our guide in picking looking at options for our pool. I was hoping to do something different and unique to accent our three shear decent waterfalls. Any thought, thanks.

check out the pics of my pool build. We did a dry stack look raised wall with our water sheers.

You cannot see too much of our wall from this angle, but we have rock (more of a field stone look).

My wall and coping is solid stone and the stones are 10" wide with random lengths (12"-36")and I helped my PB haul them a couple of times...I slept REAL good those nights.

Here are a few pictures of ours we used a lot of rocks because of the slope of our yard. I am not sure if these will turn out ok I am just trying to figure out how to post pictures.

They are photos of our 18" raised bondbeam with stacked stone and two 36" sheer desents.

Very happy with it, no problems.

Hope this helps.

Still another example....

Ours is stacked Bouquet Canyon Stone and it has held up very well over the past three years.

Good Luck with your project!

Regards,

Mike

Great photos, how tall is your spa and fire pit?

Our spa is 18" tall, which is great for additional seating space! The fire pit, is much lower, I'd say about 8" or so, but is a good place to rest your feet when you are sitting by the fire.

Regards,

Mike

Mike, with respect to the fire pit, I have a very similar installation to your setup, however I just want to set the pit up for a future fire pit and install the ring, ignitor later. Do you know what size, material and location of the conduit that run into your fire pit?

This is my stone wall. It is actually stone-faced raised beam. The stone is Granbury (from north central Texas). Just over the star mosaic is a sheer descent waterfall and the two slanted pots are also waterfall features. These are earlier photos, but we are still trying to get the plaster in. I will post more when all is complete. The stonework really didn't add that much to the overall build cost, but I feel added a lot of character. It will probably outlast me!!!

Let me know if you have any other questions.
