Wall the rage.

Gardens: Dry stone walls

I'm off to Scotland today for three weeks to help Jason Hoffman build some new dry stone garden walls. Ill be blogging from there.
There are lots of old walls there - livestock enclosures mostly, lots of them need fixing too.
But new garden walls are fairly rare.
Apparently Britain has only recently discovered that these dry stone walls are cool and always remain in style. Check out yesterday's Guardian.
