Many of Devon's hedgebanks are not faced with stone (see stone facing course). Instead they are made entirely of soil. When the bank begins to erode or collapse, it can be repaired using blocks of turf cut from the field. The blocks are placed like stonework with the grass face outermost. You'll need a Devon shovel and a decent mattock.
