Retaining Wall Inspiration

Flat paver surfaces, when installed in isolation, have a tendency to look one-dimensional. Installing a Unilock retaining wall can elevate your space, add function, and create visual interest in a variety of ways. Whether you’re building up, or building out, a Unilock wall supports everything from your garden to your grilling station. Unilock offers a number of unique retaining wall ideas to make your project soar to beautiful heights.

Elevate your design with vertical elements

Unilock retaining walls can be created and customized to serve a variety of purposes. Fireplaces, fire pits, water features, garden walls, seat walls, pillars and other vertical elements like grill islands can help transform your outdoor spaces into a functional outdoor living area.

Create function with outdoor rooms

Wall products can be used to create unique gathering, lounging, or seating zones as you construct your outdoor space. These outdoor spaces can be defined by adding seat walls or adjusting the elevation with one or two steps. Low patio walls provide additional seating for large gatherings especially when decorated with plush cushions and throw blankets, eliminating the need to set up or store extra furniture. A gently curving low patio wall around a fire pit or eye-catching fire feature creates an intimate space for family and guests. Anchoring walls with pillars adds a nice touch to the design and can be used to mount beautiful and functional lanterns or planters.

Show off your green thumb

Raised planting beds are the most common usage for walls beside patios. Planters soften rough textures by breaking up an otherwise flat space. With a combination of shrubs and flowers, turn a low garden wall into a gorgeous rainbow of color for a stunning display that will show off your green thumb.

Complement your pavers with wall accents

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.
