Fieldstone Retaining Wall, Bridgton, Maine

Maine fieldstone salvaged from an old collapsed wall and the surrounding property.  The in-progress pictures show the essential structure of a dry stone wall: the weight of the stones directed inward, with large “through-stones” spanning the entire width.  Small rocks or “hearting” fill any remaining gaps.  Finally, heavy capstones hold the top in place.
