The designer of this little river-rock tower says that of all the creative hardscape touches she’s added to her small garden over the years, this has always gotten the most attention. It’s elegant in its simplicity, and it’s minute-quick and free. What more could you ask for?

    Very appealing. I'm curious...are the stones fastened together in some way to prevent their rearrangement?

    Not at all, Stan. They're just stacked. If they fall over, they fall over. Then there's an opportunity to do something different!

    Hey, thats cool!
    I have actually seen a few creations like those that can withstand destruction...It think its the way they are stacked that makes it more sturdy...
