Mortared Stone

Rough-hewn stone forms a structure that is as much a work of art as it is a wall. \"Gluing\" it together with mortar makes it easier to build than a dry stone wall, where each stone has to fit neatly within a specific space. Top mortared walls with coping stones and mortar between the joints to prevent water and frost damage.
