depending on where it is, what the stone's like, who's paying, when it wants doing,and how you want it looking if I am doing it anything from £25 to £250 a square metre....or maybe more.

Everything's relative, if I want to make £125 a day and a very difficult technical structure takes 2 days to build 1 square metre then it's £250 a square metre. Alternatively if the wall is easy peasy and made up of big stone and everything's to hand, I can do 5 square metres a day then it's £25.00. Doesn't everybody work this way?

DSWA is frequently asked for the going rate per linear metre or square metre of walling,it is impossible to have a single rate across the country,as output rates are variable due to stone type,terrain,dressing required etc. Where the highest quality walling is required,the reduced speed of work may result in a consequent increase in the price per metre. As quoted on the DSWA home page.hope this helps
