Dry masonry means to build a wall without using a binder (cement, lime, etc.) (an example of this are made by slm, tiarescott and ng yrizarry), which is one of its biggest advantages, because if you have a river near you or a stone quarry, the only cost you will have is to bring several cubic meters of stones. 

Decorative retaining walls of dry masonry are preferred for landscaping, the distance into the grout is used to fill with flower seeds and herbs even spices.
Such walls you can see everywhere in rural areas, and areas that are close to rivers and quarries. 

Usually constructed of slab stones with different size, but they should not be too small, because the wall will be unsustainable.
Very often this type of walls are used in the landscaping of gardens. Professional landscapers would use a dull stone wall and turn it in to a rockery or rock color recess.What is their secret?

They just fill up a good fertile soil for planting in the space between the stones, also leave larger spaces also filled with fertile soil, as in the picture with the child made by Yogi.At these special places they plant plants which are used for building rock gardens.
