Stacking stones by size in readiness.
Largest near wall base, smaller further out and fillers (most important) in piles.
Ends defined with timber frames, sloped for strength.
Base string pulled taught, between nailed markers, an ideal guide.
The largest first, a flat face creating beauty.
Settled in place on the hardened ground, fillers worked in, stone stable.
Completed both faces secured and firm.
Ugly stones, rocks packed into core for added strength and durability.
With each layer the process repeats.
Markers raised, stones laid best face out, fillers inserted, cores packed.
Long narrow stones end on.
Complete this work of functioning art, this boundary of beauty.
