    Any one install manufactured stone walls. I am trying to compare price versus drystack stone. Trying to figure the cost including the footing, concrete block and the stone itself. Guessing about $30/sq. ft. for everything.

    I am bidding on a job with seat walls along a patio. This means they will be double faced.

    Thanks for any input!!

    what is your experience? building doubled sided dry stack walls or even mortared walls is nothing less than an art not something you can just pick up and go and have it look nice.

    Are you a contractor or a homeowner?

    I am a contractor. I have done allot of dry stack stone walls. I prefer them but want to see how the cost compares to the manufactured- cultured stone.

    Thanks!

    here we run anywhere from 45-65 for manufactured stone and 85 and up for natural stone installed.
