Add Stone Walls to Your Landscaping to Match the Siding on Your Home

Jul 24, 2015

If you’re looking for a few good exterior design ideas for your Kansas City home, then we recommend adding stone walls to your property’s landscape that match your home’s stone siding. Doing this is a great way to help ease the transition of your house to the environment around it. The following are a few tips for building a stone wall:

  • Choosing the right materials – There are a lot of options when it comes to the materials. If you are going to use a stone veneer in order to better match your exterior siding, then you’re going to want to build a wall from poured concrete or concrete block first before applying the stone veneer using mortar. Stone veneer is a great option because it gives you the look of stacked natural stone without the weight, and it gives you some flexibility in what you use beneath the veneer, since you can use bare cinder blocks, framed walls or concrete.
  • Deciding where to put the wall – One of the most effective ways to use a landscape wall is by using it as a retaining wall to level your landscape. You can also use walls to help define different spaces around your property, such as by creating a border between your hardscape and your landscape; for example, the wall could be a border around your garden or patio space. You can also add a wall in an area where you could use some additional seating options. In fact, the best use of a wall on your outdoor property is one that provides more than one function, such as a wall that acts as a seating option and a border.
