Retaining Walls, Seatwalls & Pillars
Both retaining walls and pillars serve functional and decorative roles in your outdoor living area. For example, if you have a steep slope in your backyard, a retaining wall helps to stop yard flooding and erosion.
Moreover, your retaining wall adds visual interest as well. It defines a backyard room and creates curves and lines into your overall design.
You have a wide range of building material choices to bring your outdoor walls together. Retaining walls can be built with these materials:
- Dry-stack stone
- Interlocking concrete blocks
- Poured concrete that is stamped and stained to look like real stone
- Mortared rock or stone
- Timbers or other types of wood.
Pillars add a touch of class as well as serve a functional purpose just like retaining walls.
For example, you can add a pillar to the retaining wall gracing your driveway entrance. Add a plaque with your house number and last name complete with a lantern-style light fixture to welcome your guests to your home.
Pillars added to your retaining wall:
- Create a definitive doorway of sorts into your outdoor living rooms
- Greet guests
- Separate landscape areas from other outdoor features, such as the horse barn, a formal garden or the pool area
- Provide storage space
- Provide a space for your mailbox
- Create built-in planters.
Pillars are built with the same materials as retaining walls.
