Dress Up a Block Wall with a Rock Wall

Rather than hiding a poured-concrete or block foundation with landscape plantings, show it off with stone veneer

Making a rock wall is easy, right? Lay down some mortar, put a rock on it, and then keep doing the same thing all day and you're done. But that's not the whole the story.

A design gallery and materials list including cost information will help you plan your project.
