Who am I?
Not your ‘run of the mill’ builder.
Duncan had the courage to let go of who he was and become who he might be!
How do we do it? When can it be done?
What are the benefits for me, our wildlife and for our heritage?
Field walls and private work on country estates, plus private work – carried out with dedication and professionalism
Pins, Lines and A-Frames are used on most walls in order that everything remains aligned. In some cases e.g. where the wall is curved, experience and a good eye is required.
Features can be incorporated within a wall for practical and aesthetic reasons.
