Home owner Johnny Zompanti has a problem: his nephew started a dry-stack stone wall in his backyard, but never finished it. Dean and Derek arrive to save the day and in the process demonstrate the proper way to install an old-fashioned-looking dry-stack wall using new palletized fieldstone. They take us from the quarry to the job site and provide insider tips on how to organize stone and build a solid wall that will last forever. They also incorporate three granite steps into the wall and demonstrate how to measure steps and cut the granite for proper installation.
