I'm trying to match an existing wall to build another wall.

Here's what my local nursery said it is...I'm not so sure.

Oakfield Steppers

We get all kinds from the same quarry,,, and have many different quarrys around the state... your 2 pix are not a close enough match, IMO... you might have to check out construction yards to find the same thing yourself... or just get enough of one kind of rock and haul away the 'hard to find' variety... keep them on hand for another job...

Thanks, I think I'll have to pass on this job as this will be a difficult match. The wall he wants is only 16' long by 16" high so it is not worth the time it will take to find the stone, get it and install it.
