Dry stone walls are elements that shape the landscape. By using natural stone from the area and by visually structuring the walls with stones that correspond in size and weight to the human scale, dry stone walls fit harmoniously into landscapes. The preservation of dry stone walls is important for the protection of the landscape and in the field of soft tourism.
These advantages can also be utilised in the area of private gardening. Warming, south-facing walls provide a protective environment for heat-loving, southern plants , terracing shapes the terrain harmoniously and free-standing walls provide wind and privacy protection.
