Natural stone, brick, garden walls, and wooden walls can have different functions in our yards.

We can use them to retain, hide, compliment, divide, or decorate.

Whatever reason you have for adding a landscaping wall to your yard, this section is just one more way to show the different uses of materials available to you.

We have some great retaining wall ideas using stone, landscaping timbers and boulders.
