A double set of Briar Hill sandstone walls, before the planting(s) occurred.
[Briar Hill: 7 and 3/4 inch ht. plus 1 and 3/4 ht sections. ]
This wall stone usually ships out at those heights and the length is 34 to 36 inches. I do all the “rock-facing” to create those edges and that awesome shadow line.
I won't mind if you share this:

How can this posting go uncommented for so long?
I am unfamilure with this type of stone.
Is it natually taken from the ground in the dimensions you have stated?
I take from your comments that the shadow line is created by the stone mason and is not natural.
That’s an interesting touch and not too hard to create.
This is a very nice wall that invites plantings.
I have an application that would be well dressed with a wall like this. This stone seems to be worked easily. The length of the stone appears to make curved walls smoothly.
What is the depth of the stone?
I love using stonework in my garden. Every few months, I want to tear it all out and start over. Great post.
