Adding fireplaces, fire pits, water features, garden walls, seat walls, pillars and other vertical elements like grill islands can help transform your outdoor spaces into an outdoor living area. Incorporating the same accents from the horizontal surface creates a unified design.
Retaining Wall Inspiration
Build the vertical dimension
As you design your outdoor space, create distinct areas. These spaces can be defined by changing the elevation with 1 or 2 steps or by adding seat walls. Seat walls also provide added seating for large get-togethers and eliminate the need for extra furniture. Anchoring walls with pillars adds a nice touch to the design and can be used to mount beautiful and functional lanterns.
Add a wall accent
For a completely harmonious design, design your walls, pillars and grill islands to complement your paver selection. Simply incorporating the same color banding in the wall as used in the paver surface will tie the entire project design together and set your project even further apart from others.
