Materials used for the Haw Creek Wall

The Haw Creek Wall, as we call it, is a drystone retaining wall in the Haw Creek neighborhood, in the eastern parts of Asheville, North Carolina. We’re using Hooper’s Creek, a granitic gneiss quarried in Fletcher, NC as our primary building stone. It has all the toughness of granite, but it also possesses an unruly grain. It is hard, sharp, and tough to work, and it makes the sturdiest and most beautiful walls.
