What are walls? The walls I am referring to are made out of concrete and are made to look like a rock. These walls are referred to as Retaining Walls or Gravity Walls. Wall block comes in many sizes, shapes, and colors. Retaining or Gravity Walls can be little and used for something such as a seating wall or very large and used to hold up a parking lot that is twenty foot higher than the first wall of course.
Most of the walls we build in our area are used for seating around a patio or to outline a planter or tree. This is an easy and quick way to add curb appeal to your house without a big expense. By doing something as simple as encircling a tree with a wall, only 15” high, you can change the whole look of your front yard. These small garden walls allow you to build up the grade and keep the mulch from migrating into your grass. We often add some low voltage lighting to the walls to give them a great look at night.
We use the same wall material to build steps; many times we build a set of steps and incorporate small planter walls next to them. Add some lights under the caps of the steps and wall……WOW! What a great look. So if you want to add a little pizzazz to your yard and not spend tons of money, let us install a garden wall for you and see how it can change the look of your yard.
