Rebuild Stone Walls

Updated:2014-04-28 13:43:14
Stone walls endure the tests of time because the porous, organic materials resist rusting and rotting. Unfortunately, stone walls will not withstand every obstacle and often the walls begin to crumble and fall loose, sink into the ground, become covered in vines or get knocked down by vehicles or falling trees. Rebuilding a stone wall to patch broken areas is a very similar process to the initial construction, differing only in that you do not have to locate as many new stones when rebuilding.

Instructions as follows:

                                                           

Firstly, don the appropriate attire for your project. You need to wear work gloves, work boots, a long-sleeved shirt and work pants to protect yourself from sharp stones.
Secondly, place all loose stones from the area inside a wheelbarrow to more easily access them as you rebuild the wall. Gather only loose stones lying on the ground or near the wall and not loose peculiar stones from the top of the remaining portion of the stone wall.
Thirdly, remove any vines and growth covering the portions of the stone walls. This provides you with a better view of the stone wall for both aesthetics and to aid in the reconstruction process. You should also remove any fallen trees that lie over top of the stone wall before you get started replacing the stones in the wall.
Fourthly, locate any areas of the sandstone wall that swoop down and have a much lower top level than the rest of the wall. Focus your rebuilding efforts on these areas first, building the wall up to an average height throughout the length of the wall.
