Retaining walls are one way to do this, providing a method of sectioning off your yard in various ways, and offering the additional option of pillars to complement the aesthetic and functionality of the design.

Extra seating

If you entertain frequently, ensuring that your yard provides a haven for guests means that you can confidently take the party outdoors. Hosting outdoor events calls for additional seating, which is easy to offer when you use smooth coping to cap your retaining walls and accompanying pillars. Unilock offers coping with all of the rich texture and earthy coloring of natural stone – perfect for making these features a place to sit and relax outdoors. Consider your outdoor space an extension of your home, and use retaining walls and pillars to section off this space into functional areas, just as you would in your indoor spaces.

Add depth to the landscape

Smaller yards and flat plots call for inventive landscaping. By adding levels to the landscape, you can add depth and dimension to your property to enhance the space. Try the look of stacked natural stone with Rivercrest Wall or the tumbled look of Estate Wall to accomplish a natural flow and effective aesthetic when creating a multi-level space using retaining walls.

Maximize aesthetic effect

Whether you incorporate retaining walls into your property design out of necessity, such as to prevent erosion, or for aesthetic value, be sure to include eye-catching pillars to break up the monotony of longer walls and provide a bold finish for shorter ones. Lighting accessories can be installed on top of these to ensure a safe and attractive evening setting. Unilock offers a variety of wallstone systems, each available in a range of shades so that you can appropriately complement the appearance of your home and overall property. You know quality when you see it, and construction provided by an Authorized Unilock Contractor will give your property exactly that.
