stone material culvert property

Taking on the task of building a dry-stacked stone culvert — that is, a stone culvert that doesn’t use mortar — presents the very satisfying opportunity to build something that’ll be strong enough for you to drive a vehicle over and will look very much like a beautiful dry-stacked stone bridge. There’s no reason to go with bags of sand or cement, blocks, plastic, metal, or anything man-made in your finished culvert. With a little bit of effort and the right stone material, a culvert can become the showcase of your property. After all, it’s the first thing people will see when they pull up to your drive. Why not make it stunning?

  1. I want to build a stone culvert. I was given your information to help direct me in my ideas. I have only taken 2 basic dry stone wall courses. I have so many large stones/boulders and several good size stone. I would much rather be able to use my abundance of stone to make a stunning culvert versus spending more money than I need on someone building a bridge out of wood/steel etc.
