Cropped dry stone walling
Supplied in random bags, cropped to approximately 115 to 125mm on bed; random lengths with rise heights anywhere between approximately 25 to 90mm (1” - 3.5”).
You should get 3.5 face M2 to a bag if you are leaving the front with no mortar showing, 4 M2 with a full mortar bed.
Our cropped walling is a rough dressed building stone; therefore it may require some work to fit/dressing. Our stone is generally flat in nature and should not require too much dressing, but it is usually better to have experienced stone layers rather than 'Bricklayers' on a project using this type of stone.
The rise heights/bed widths are mentioned in the Specification above.
