About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Lime mortar repointing
Location Buckland, United Kingdom
Introduction I initially began my career 15 years ago where I started developing a knowledge base in drystone walling, horticulture and lime mortar. After training as a garden designer I then began turning my drawings into fully installed gardens. I carried on working with mortar and stone and was drawn further into the skill of stonemasonry until I eventually gave up my other interests to work full time on period properties.
Interests I've now been working with lime mortar for 12 years and can confidently say that I understand it. Over the years I've developed a feel for it and understand the science of mortar to the point where I can produce pieces of work to the standard that any 16th or 17th century craftsman would be proud.
