This dry-laid stone was sourced from a local Vermont quarry - that is about all I can tell you.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lawn care. Lawn, pasture, meadow or field — how do you define your grassy areas? We have all four, and if I’m honest, their definition is largely dependent upon the amount of time and care we give them.
Installing the stone. Achieving a sound structure means adhering to specific guidelines. When choosing a contractor, make sure he or she is experienced in the craft and check out previous work. Each stone is hand chiseled to fit within the wall, and there are no wobbly stones. Stone wedges are used to stabilize rocks within the wall. Rubble rock, or backfill, is placed behind the cut stones to help with the integrity of the wall.
Donald Pell - Gardens added this to Creating a There, There in the Garden
The expanse of this lawn makes way for views of the majestic landscape. The pavilion is artfully set to take advantage of these views. Most of us won’t have this landscape or even this beautiful pavilion, but we can learn lessons about the opportunities of a site. Borrowed views make for ideal places to drive a stake in the ground and develop.
