Dry stone feature walls create continutity

Mixed drystone feature walls adds texture and colour to a modern palette

Connecting the internal and external living spaces, a blend of Mitta Mitta and Alpine drystone clads several key pillars and blade walls which dissect this home. A beautful collection of stones that bears a comparison to the formidable Western Australian landscape, these feature walls bring a rich colour palette and tactile relief to the contemporary materials used within this building.  Visible from both inside and outside of the home they create continuity through the architectural scheme.

Your outdoor feature wall design starts here

When it comes to garden landscape ideas, stone feature walls can be a terrific way to break up a space and provide some boundaries and intimacy in different parts of the garden.

Maybe you’d like to create a water feature or some low level borders for planting within your landscape garden design. Maybe your considering creating an outdoor room or how to delineate an area around your outdoor fireplace. Whatever you are doing, it makes sense to start with your garden landscape design.

When it comes to feature wall ideas, there are obvious design considerations – where will the wall be placed? What are you trying to achieve from a design point of view? Is there another landscaping stone already in the landscape design 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 (this basically means finding a stone which also offers corner pieces to make it look like a built wall). 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.

 And remember, our natural 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.

Incorporating a stone feature wall in your landscape garden design has never been easier.
