How to Build a Mortared Stone Wall
This stone wall was built in the winter.

Don't let a little snow scare you. Winter is a great time for this project.

With a little planning and a lot of sweaters, building mortared stone walls can be a fun winter hardscaping project.

Building a mortared stone wall is more challenging in the winter. Not only will you be lifting heavy stones and mixing mortar, but you'll be doing it in less than ideal conditions. I'm not going to lie; it won't be easy. But if you enjoy a challenge then follow these steps and you can build such a structure successfully even in winter.
