WOODBURY, N.J. (PRWEB) May 22, 2019
Garden walls raise the curb appeal of a landscape. With new and varied architectural ideas, homeowners have more ways to boost their homes’ appearance using something as simple as a garden wall.
In current design, creativity rules. No longer are homeowners following the same old lines. Garden Hardscape elements do not have to mimic the home’s angles. Curved garden walls are a great way to bring some softness into the space. The sharp points of dormers and the rectangular shapes of a home’s façade can be elevated to design statements when a few low curved garden wall offer contrast and interest. Homeowners looking for a more casual design may find that garden walls are a good way to fill in the curves their landscapes are missing.
Mixed media, a pop art form, takes its name from the varied elements artists use in the work. e.g., fabric is used with paint, crayons are used with watercolors. In Hardscape design, new and innovative mixed material constructions are showing up in catalogs. A cutout for high-backed wood seating can be built into garden walls. Bench seating for an outdoor dining area or fire pit can be made with garden wall block and furnished with fabric-covered back and seat pads for comfort.
Columns are right for every part of the landscape. They add visual breaks in walls and they help define a space. Columns constructed from special garden wall block are complementary to the garden wall, making them an easy addition to a Hardscape’s design. Columns can be built to almost any height and for a variety of purposes. Homeowners can design a low column with a flat cap to hold a favorite garden accessory, or heighten the column to hold a lamp or support a trellis of flowers. Any landscape benefits from the majestic nature of columns in garden walls.
Homeowners can get creative with these ideas for garden walls. Gone are the days of the straight, staid lines of the past. Today’s garden walls can travel in many directions, all the while leading the eye through a wonderfully interesting and welcoming landscape that any homeowner would love.
