Garden Wall Guidance
You want to offer a versatile landscaping product with natural longevity to stand the test of time. Urban Hardscapes by Indiana Limestone Garden Wall creates an eye-pleasing addition or can give your customer’s backyard an entirely new look.
Our Garden Wall can blend with a variety of architectural styles, as well as the colors and textures in the surrounding landscape. The Garden Wall can be cut on-site to achieve a variety of looks. Below are some garden wall application ideas:
- Low accent wall or seat wall – A low accent wall with an adjacent & tied-in sister wall can be used for seating if capped with a wide, flat stone
- Framing a small outdoor staircase
- Planters – A dry-stacked wall works well for a raised planter. Perfect for shallow floral beds and landscaping elements
By adding our Garden Wall products to your line, you will be able to offer differing heights to fit any style and landscaping need. The 3′′ height in longer lengths creates a more contemporary look, while the 6′′ height in a bonded pattern offers a more monolithic style. Homeowners can create a more dynamic feel by mixing the 3′′ and 6′′ ashlar patterns. The possibilities are endless.
When deciding how high to build a Garden Wall masterpiece, dry stack designs should only be used in limited and non-retaining applications. Walls, excluding caps, should not exceed 2 feet in a single wythe. Larger heights can be designed if multiple interlocking wythes of product are used. If using caps on a single depth wall, it is recommended to use mortar to set the cap for stability. Designs should always be completed or reviewed by a landscape professional or mason prior to construction.
