Ever wonder how to attractively balance round objects on top of each other? The stone guys, Dean and Derek, demonstrate the answer to this age old question on their home ground in Cohasset, Mass. when they tackle a garden retaining wall with a mixture of round fieldstones and give the wall a true New England-style dry stack look. They select a mixture of stones that will ensure a beautiful finished project and build the wall with an emphasis on ratio and tight, consistent joints — no easy feat when the stones range in size from basketballs to baseballs and have no flat edges. The end result is one that gardeners and backyard aficionados everywhere will be eager to call their own.
