Stone Pitching

 

This technique involves interlocking large stones, with their flattest side up to create small irregular steps that blend into the landscape. Due to its cost (approximately £100 per metre), this approach is only employed where the gradient is too steep for the other methods (i.e.those above 1:4 (25%)).
