The Benefits Of Adding A Stonewall To Your Landscape

Author : Rod Pinto

When creating a beautiful landscaped garden for your home, it is important to incorporate different textures. A garden should not just be filled with flowers, trees and shrubs. There has to be other textures and one good way to do that is by adding the element of stone to your garden.

Stone is one of the most durable building materials that have been used since the ancient times. In addition to its durability, stone also has the added benefit of being both beautiful and very natural. When adding another element to your garden, it is important to add materials that are natural so that they blend in with the rest of the natural elements of the garden like the plants.

One way to incorporate stone to your garden is by creating a functional yet beautiful stonewall. A stonewall can be used to create a division from your herb garden from the rest of the garden. This will create a separation between the two parts of your garden. A stonewall is a very effective way to create divisions in your garden. It can also be used to created layers in your landscape which can make it more visually appealing.

One of the most popular uses of a stonewall is to create a border between your property and that of the neighbour's. A stonewall can be erected to provide you with some privacy. The landscape looks more intimate when it is enclosed by a stonewall. It looks natural so it blends perfectly with the rest of the landscape. It also serves a double purpose since it can also be used as a background for your garden. Flowering vines can be planted along the stonewall to add to the beauty of the landscape. It is a more natural way to enclose your landscape and property rather than erecting walls made of cement and steel.

A stonewall can be used in so many ways throughout your landscape but what is great about them is that even if they are newly added structural elements to your garden, they still look as if they have always been part of your landscape. One of the most attractive qualities of stonewall is that they look so natural that they blend in instantly. They do not stick out like a sore thumb in your beautiful landscape. To make them look more natural and aged, you can even let some moss grow on the stones. A stonewall is both functional and very pleasing to the eye.
