Decorative retaining walls and staircases can transform a simple space into a tiered terrace. Retaining walls may work to manage runoff and soil but can also provide privacy, ease of movement, and section off specific areas. Large hills can be divided into layers to create architectural interest and add majesty to an otherwise simple slope. Though retaining walls take away from grassy real estate, they can make yards appear larger and more functional. Tiered wall designs are also great for keeping kids play areas separated from areas used for entertaining.
Decorative walls are a perfect way to add extra seating for backyard barbeques and conversations around the fire. With a few simple outdoor pillows and cushions, walls become beautiful benches. Depending on their height, retaining walls can also be used as tables or buffets. If you need a little privacy, retaining walls can help separate you from the rest of the crowd. Make your wall into a planter to create even more height and a natural division of space. Curved walls create intimacy and a feeling of closeness.
