Nothing beats a little privacy in your garden...and what better way to get that than from a few well-placed garden walls and railings? Here’s our list of tips and tricks for getting the most out of your garden walls and railings!

  • Consider brick over stone – not only is it more affordable, it actually absorbs the sun’s rays without incurring as much damage as a natural stone.

  • If you must, indeed, use natural stone, do so only if your home is a historic, or older, home. That will give the home its unique, antique look.

  • After hours appointments can be made by phone.

  • If you insist on going with a natural stone for your newer home, consider a mortared stone. This stone looks more weather-beaten, is less symmetrical, and creates a distinctive look.

  • A dry stone wall is the most expensive option; however, if you place the stones properly, you won’t need mortar (so you can save a few bucks there).

  • For a unique wall idea, try a gabion: this kind of retaining wall is created by putting a series of stones in a wire mesh box, which is then pilloried into a wall. 

  • To that end, you can also create a mosaic wall from a mixture of tiles, stones, and terra cotta. This wall, however, will require a lot of skill, because you need to create a concrete retainer in order to hold it all into place.

  • Create a screen wall made of concrete blocks if you have a low patio or a small garden – you won’t sacrifice either form or function!

These are just a few ideas you can implement into your garden to create something that’s both beautiful and functional. If you’re ready to get started, give us a call today, and let’s see what we can do for you! There’s no job – no garden – too big or too small!
