Retaining & Feature Walls
Eco Outdoor’s approach to retaining walls and vertical feature walls is to apply a pre-prepared cladding material or veneer onto the wall.
Our stone cladding materials have a sawn back for easy application and a frontal split finish which makes the building process a lot simpler but gives the appearance that the wall is made from whole stone blocks.
When it comes to feature wall ideas, there are obvious design considerations - where will the wall be featured? What are you trying to achieve from a design point of view? Is there another design element already in the outdoor space that you’d like to pick up with a complimentary stone type?
One of the most important things to consider when you’re building a retaining wall or vertical feature wall is the corner detail and capping. You want to find solutions, which make the stone wall appear as a solid structure rather than stone veneers which have just been ‘stuck on’ to a block wall.
