7. Environmentally Friendly Options
By using natural materials such as bluestone, cultured stone and brick, you can make your seating wall environmentally friendly. If you have a paver patio, opt for a paver stone wall to match your materials and achieve a uniform look.
To further support sustainability, make your seating walls permeable. Made of porous materials, such as gravel or rocks, a permeable seating wall allows rainwater to flow through to replenish groundwat er.
Avoid capping your seating wall with rough flagstone or any irregular surfacing that may cause discomfort. Instead, opt for a material with a smooth surface, such as concrete or paver stones, for your cap. Add pillows or cushions on your sitting wall cap to provide extra comfort.
A seating wall brings aesthetic and functional benefits, including increasing your property value, enhancing your patio’s appearance and improving your outdoor living space. It can also double as a retaining wall or support an existing one to strengthen soil stability.
