Using Your Retaining Wall for Seating in Overland Park, Olathe, Kansas City, Lawrence

Your landscape design should go beyond simply raising the property value of your real estate. In addition to enhancing the curb appeal of your home, an effective landscape design should enhance the functionality, appearance, and enjoyment of your property. These designs can be reflective of your personality while maintaining a consistent flow of design that complements your home as well. One option for incorporating style and function into your design is to include seating in your retaining wall system. For this, Unilock offers a diverse range of styles for construction in Overland Park, Olathe, Kansas City, or Lawrence.

Cumberland Wall

An elegant option for building a retaining wall with incorporated seating is Cumberland Wall from Unilock. Particularly when paired with Ledgestone Coping, the construction of a seating wall built from Cumberland Wall will convey sophistication and functionality. You can choose from the shades of River, Sandstone, and Sierra, creating a high quality unit to save your soil from erosion and provide your guests with a comfortable place to rest, all while enhancing the overall impact of your landscape aesthetic.

Lineo Dimensional Stone

While some landscapes lean toward sophisticated natural elegance, other landscapes are more appropriate when reflecting a more contemporary bent. The clean lines and modern appearance of Lineo Dimensional Stone offers a sleek look while flexibility is provided by the many different sizes of building units. Lineo Dimensional Stone also comes with a pillar unit and pillar cap, which adds yet another dimension to creating wall seating. If your home calls for a modern or contemporary retaining wall in continuation with its architectural style, look no further than Lineo Dimensional Stone.

Suitable for an array of style preferences, this option can easily be incorporated to enhance the comfort and aesthetic of your backyard spaces.
