The Beauty of Stone Wall Landscaping

Nov 19, 2012 | Gardens, Patios

Before you decide on any landscaping design, take a good look at the areas you want to improve, highlight or just make more visually appealing.  Take note of natural slopes and dips in the landscape. A great way to take advantage of these features is to employ stone wall landscaping.

Stone walls can be constructed of many types of stone, both cut and in their natural shapes. There are many uses for stone walls which will add beauty to your yard and even increase the value of your home.


Retaining walls

A retaining wall can solve gardening problems on properties where the land slopes. Use a retaining wall to create garden or flower beds.  A retaining wall adds interest to the vista by accentuating the levels while setting carefully designed garden beds apart from other areas, such as patios or walkways.


Enclose a patio

A low stone wall that runs the perimeter of a patio creates an area that feels private and cozy, setting it apart from the rest of the yard.  Whether you use the patio for barbecues, outdoor dining or just sitting with friends around a fire pit, your patio should be your own private world. A stone wall enclosure to your patio will create that private area for relaxing and socializing.


Establish a barrier

A stone wall to demarcate a property line makes a statement that is very different from wood fencing. The stone wall won’t block the view while creating a barrier that is visually appealing and full of possibilities. Explore the varied shapes, textures and color when choosing the right stone for your barrier wall and find the right combination that makes the statement you want your home to make.
