Cracks, Moisture And Your Landscape Masonry
The smallest cracks in masonry can allow moisture to slowly enter and with our cold winter weather it can then freeze. The freeze thaw cycles and constant expansion and contracting of the masonry will often result in tiny cracks becoming much bigger cracks and eventually threatening the structural integrity of the masonry itself. Any masonry you are going to incorporate into your landscaping should be completed by trained professionals using techniques that have been refined over centuries.
Hiring The Right Mason For Your Outdoor Masonry Projects
There is more to it then the careful application of mortar and stacking one stone or brick at a time. Masonry is an art form and one that takes many years to develop. When it comes to outdoor masonry structures such as a patio, retaining wall or outdoor fireplace you want the construction to last a very long time. The durability and longevity of the masonry will be a direct reflection of the skill and knowledge of the mason who constructed it.
