Oddly I came across an article in Esquire magazine about how to build a stonewall in your backyard.
Considering I think we have about a million field stones I can't help but imagine how amazing an 18 inch or so wall would look lining the driveway up to the house.
I'm sure Chris will kill me when I tell him of this new brilliant (and free) plan. Since it really isn't about the cost of materials, but I'm sure the back breaking labor of moving the stones is going to get me in some hot water.
