    Hello... I am building 2 different boulder wall at at my home and I have a question is someone can help.

    For the first wall, I'm constructing a wall in the center of a circular driveway with 5" - 12" granite boulders, dry stacked about 2 ft heigh and 107 ft long.

    The second wall runs the length of my home, with 18 - 24" boulders(dry stacked) about 3 ft heigh and 200 ft long.

    I have build concrete block (pavestone walls) before and set a good 6" level compacted base, with drain pipe and fabric with 3/4" rock behind the wall.

    But do I need to do the samething for the boulder walls. (base,drain and drain rock). I would think with the non-exact fitting of the dry stacked rocks, water would just run out of the seams and the 3/4" drain rock could also come out.

    Thank You for your help,
