We built this wall last January in the Montlake Neighborhood of Seattle. At 75 sq ft of wall face, it used up around 7 tons of rock.
Here is a close-up of the wall face. The stone variety is a kind of slate which is sourced from the area of Glacier National Park in Montana. Even after spraying it down, the resulting stone dust is still clinging to the face. After another month of rain, it ought to reveal its true colors – the interior grain has a very nice bluish color.
To see more of our past walls, take a look at our Stone Wall Photo Gallery.
