Pathways and stone wall management in Historic Gardens

Webinar: 21 November 2023
Practical workshop: 2024, in Sweden

Pathways and stone walls are structural core elements of most historic gardens. The pathways of the garden might be hidden under layers of soil and only faintly detectable. They vary in the materials that are used, durability and purpose. What could be the history of a pathway and how can it be maintained sustainable into the future?

Behind stone walls in historic gardens and the landscape surrounding them lies a diverse history. Masonry techniques, materials, maintenance work and ecological impact depend on their age, context and surroundings. The building, maintenance and restoration of these structures require significant skills both concerning practical workmanship as well as a deep understanding of their diverse values.
