What backing was used behind the stones, if any? - Our dry-laid natural stone retaining wall is being "reorganized". The mesh fabric backing the stones needs to be replaced. Can you advise a backing material? Thank you in advance for your response to this question.

To obtain the look of a dry stack wall and have some retaining properties, we typically start by pouring a concrete footing. We then begin stacking the stone, as the wall rises we pour a solid concrete wall behind the stack stone reinforced with re-bar, grouting back of stones into new concrete wall. This will lock the stones into place and at the same time achieve the dry stack look. Hope this helps with your wall.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Benefits of dry-laid stone retaining walls:They resist fire, water and insects.They can be recycled due to the dry-laid method.They provide natural drainage without any damage to the structure, unlike mortared walls, which tend to crack and break into sections.Note: You may not want to use the dry-laid method right up against a swimming pool because of the silt that filters through the stone wall from rain or sprinklers. A dry-joint method would be a better choice to achieve the same look.
