Rock Wall, Block Island

from 35.00

The free standing rock walls on Block Island are used to herd sheep. Walls like this use no concrete and are designed to rest on themselves. The changing seasons and high winds throughout the year require a certain flexibility in material. In what seems counter intuitive, the freestanding rock wall make the most sense for the climate and condition. They also reflect the practical, elegant design of the New Englander.
