Everything is unbelievably well done - my compliments to the designer and builder! How did you secure the wooden fence to the dry wall without compromising the stability?

The stone was gathered from a fallen 18th century wall that ran through the property. The stone would be referred to as Pennsylvania field stone from the Chester County region. If you were to contact a quarry in the area they might be able to provide additional information. We would recommend Rolling Rock Building Stone out of Boyertown, Pa.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Archer's team paid careful attention to the stonework throughout the cottage and grounds to ensure that it would feel appropriate to the original 18th-century wall.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Cottage Garden Style
Stone and unpainted wood are equally authentic choices for fencing, and this fence artfully combines both. You can even use hedges to create a boundary. Keep the materials simple; for example, a stone wall should be short and look dry set, not like a massive construction piece.
