With good planning and execution, dry-laid paving lasts for many years. Even if it needs occasional re-leveling, you can use the same stones over and over. The trick is to spend most of your time on the preparation to build a durable base. Instructor Brooks Burleson of Stone Craftsman will work with you, discussing design choices, how to measuring slopes, paving preparation and installation. Participants will work on a small paving project in class to provide hands-on experience. Everyone must complete a participation agreement with registration. All materials included in the fee. Please bring a lunch and wear work clothes. Instructor: Brooks Burleson of Stone Craftsman. Burleson created many beautiful stonework features at Duke Gardens. Location: meet at the Doris Duke Center. Qualifies for Home Horticulture Certificate elective course (6 hours). Information/registration: 919-668-1707 or
