Dry Stone Walling / Dyking

Drystone walling or dyking can be used to build structural functional elements such as walls, piers and bridges or entirely decorative features from sculptural elements to fire pits.

Working on large and small commissions and repairs over many years we have developed a wide range of experience and knowledge which we enjoy utalsing on drystone work.

Weather forming entranceway’s, walled driveways, retaining walls, pillars, steps, seats, tables, drystone BBQ’s, drystone bridges the only limitation is the imagination.

Tom was recommended to me by several people and I am glad I went with their recommendations. He is obviously highly experienced and the end result is fantastic. I didn’t really know what I needed but Tom advised me how it should be done. He is very flexible and keeps you informed of how and when is best to carry out the work, taking care to consider weather conditions. A true professional!

Prompt, friendly and business like, Thomas checked out, assessed and estimated for repair of a dangerous broken step at the bottom of our common stairwell. Ahead of schedule and, at short notice, he resolved our problem to everyone’s satisfaction. TJF Stonemasonry is local to the Canongate and we would be more than happy to avail ourselves of their splendid services again. Highly recommended.

Very happy with the work done by Thomas and his team. The work involved some plastic repairs (lithomex) to my tenement wall to fix an area of stone that had delaminated and crumbled away. It was quite an awkward spot to get to as the access scaffold had to be built on another flat roof and the repair itself was high level, just below the gutter line, but they done a great job and got it sorted despite some very windy weather. I would recommend to friends and call on them again if the need arises.

Repaired external stairs – work was completed with excellent masonry skills, on time and within budget. What else can you ask for. Highly recommend you use Tom Ferris Stonemasonry.

Stone repairs, replacement of ridge tiles and pointing of chimneys and wall heads.
Excellent service. I have used TJ Ferris Stonemasonry on a number of occasions now and would not hesitate to recommend this company both for the work done and value for money. Both Thomas and Blake are excellent workmen.
