Simple Stonescaping: Gardens, Walls, Paths & Waterfalls
Sterling Publishing Company, Inc., 2003 - 128 Seiten
For walks, waterfalls, gates, fences, benches, and more, stone is one of the best materials for outdoor structures. And, working with stone can be simple! From creating the design to preparing the site to pouring concrete, this is the information you'll need to get started. There's guidance on coming up with a layout, drawing a plan, providing for drainage, and improving aesthetics. Pictures present a range of magnificent stones for your consideration--including granite, marble, slate, quartzite, and more--along with advice on buying, gathering, moving, cutting and placing them. Find out what tools you'll need (mostly ordinary things, like shovels, hammers, saws, blades, drills, trowels, and levels), and how to excavate and keep a safe working area. Mix mortar and do jointing, and then begin one of more outstanding projects: a veneered, solid stone, dry-stack or curved wall columns a paved walkway a patio, archway, stone pond, or steps.
