All you need is The Art and Craft of Stonescaping, a shovel, hammer, small stones and a few feet of land to perfect this art: master stonemason David Reed guides motivated homeowners through every step of dry-laid stonework. Have a sloped garden? Build a beautiful retaining wall with built-in benches and flowers growing out through the stone joints. Crave the soothing sound of water? Try the dramatic waterfall project constructed with two stone-lined pools. A wealth of color photography offers plenty of inspiration.
