    I have a wall around my house that is needing repaired but I cant find the original coping stones to replace the broken ones.
    The original coping stones have an insert that fits perfect in the wall that is hollow.( I haven't seen a wall like it before)

    There's newer style coping stones that are sat on the wall at the bottom of the garden and they have a slight over hang, the previous owners put them on but they don't have inserts on them and haven't been cemented in.

    Does anyone know where you can get the original coping stones from or would it be worth putting all new style coping stones on the wall and trying to cement them on even know the wall is quite thin on both sides.(the wall is hollow and thin and looks like facing stone with rods between them)

    thanks for any help

    You could always fill the gap with soil, then plant some house leeks, or similar plant that would thrive in low moisture conditions. Sedums might too. Maybe oregano. Make it look like a feature!!
