Rock/Stone Fence

This fence was very interesting to me, because I thought about how much figurin' it took to lay out this block/brick structure. Linking in with Theresa today for Good Fences.


It didn't look like there was any mortar involved in the construction.

Have a good day

Nice wall. Mostly there is some soil between the rocks, but that may have gone lost.But it is very studdy anyway.

WOW, this is a fine stone fence. Looks sturdy enough to me. I am just wondering how thick the walls are. Nice capture.

That stone fence is unusual. A great picture!

This is a lovely example of a dry stone wall. it needs a good craftman to be able to do this properly. We have quite a number of these walls in Donegal,Ireland.

Very interesting fence, Linda :)

A chunky look of wall but appealing.

Very nice wall, must have taken a long time to find the right pieces to put together and built it.
Great find :)
Have a wonderful day

Dry stacking stone is something I envy. It amazes me how the stones hold themselves.

Dixie Poets said...

that takes talent and lots of work...

TexWisGirl said...

how neat! wish we had stone fences up in these parts. not enough rock available and too much unstable soil. :)

How amazing! Think of the back breaking work to put that together! Hugs!!!

Your picture gives an optical illusion of curves in the wall but looking closer, I can see bushes.

Wow - those rocks are interlocked tightly. You don't see craftsmanship like that anymore.

Wonderful stone wall fencing. These type of walls are quite fascinating.

No matter how it was made, this is a beautiful wall. I love the wavy shape of it and how the rocks are laid. It's simply beautiful. Did you find this wall here in the States?

i think it is one of my most faves of types of fencing. using the environment to make up your fence. very cool. a recycling of sorts. ( :

Stone walls are an art.

I reckon it took a good bit of beer to get it perfectly straight like that - ha ha!

We have some of those partitions down here in Tasmania, mostly built from people from England and Ireland.

It really is beautiful and has such a natural look to it. I hope it lasts for centuries.
