Purbeck Walling can be used for drystone walls or set in mortar. Being a natural stone the shades can vary from cream to ginger and grey. The individual pieces vary in size to add to the natural beauty of a drystone wall.
Each tonne is enough to make approx 4 square metres of facing. (That is to say, a single wall thickness 4 metres long and 1 metre high, or 8 metres long and 50cm high),
The most traditional way to build a natural stone wall is to use random walling. It is used mainly in and around the garden for boundary walls, planters, and retaining walls. A retaining wall is faced on one side only, and is normally backed up with soil. A free-standing wall is faced on both sides, and therefore twice as much stone is required. The stone can be laid dry or in mortar.
