Granite Arch

A granite arch provides a feature piece for a garden landscape.

A low retaining wall complements the primary arch and extends around raised garden beds.

The joints between the stones are rope joints, a skilled joint style not commonly used.

A relief carving peers out of the key stone of the arch, displaying the head and pectoral fins of a humpback whale. 

 The arch is capped with a sandstone slab. The flat stone surface can be used to set off a garden ornament; in this case a salmon.

Carved in granite and flicking its tail, the salmon sits on the slab above the key stone.
