Dry stack walls


LawnSite Senior Member
Lisbon Falls ME.
Got a request for a dry stack wall todAY. I have never done one, but my brother in law grew up doing this sort of thing. My problem is pricing per Sq foot. It would be flat weathered stone @ 1.5" to @2" in thickness. How should I price this?

I would determine the materials needed for the job.
Mortar, block, sand, concrete, base, backfill (if any) and try to determine the time involved constructing the wall.

Since you have family that has this type experience, thats where you could start with the pricing questions.

It takes some time to do it right. Don't cut yourself short like I did on my first one.

Don't cut corners.
