History of the Santa Barbara Stone Wall
A popular type of wall often featured in Santa Barbara landscapes is a stonewall. During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, many immigrants came to Santa Barbara from Ireland and Italy. These settlers brought with them expertise in stonewall building.
The founders of Down To Earth Landscapes, Inc., are heirs to this hereditary knowledge. Although there are many different ways to build a stonewall, we prefer to use the traditional non-mortar method, a key feature of which is the crafting of each stone to fit perfectly into the next like a puzzle piece.
These walls are extremely versatile. They can fit in a traditional Spanish or Tuscan Santa Barbara style garden, and English garden, or they can be completely redesigned to fit the look of any design style. A stonewall is a great choice for a landscape because the material is local and plentiful. It is an art piece that will continue to impress for years to come.

- Redwood dog ear
- Grape stake
Types of Walls:
