Nov 21, 2023

Your garden should be an oasis of peace and tranquillity. A place where you’re able to relax and unwind, admire the exquisite beauty of nature and while away the time on a sunny afternoon – or casually toil in the soil, therapeutically improving the environment. Keen gardeners and experienced landscapers alike can often neglect one of the most important aspects of beautifying any garden environment – their drystone walling. This is a shame as with a few simple touches, anyone can drastically improve the aesthetic of their garden. All they need to do is to pay a little attention to their drystone walling.

All’s it takes is a few simple touches. Interested in learning more? Keep reading to discover how you can make sure your garden is piercingly eye-catching throughout the summer months – and the rest of the year.

Garden Wall Decorations

A little decoration goes a long way. Sometimes all you need is the addition of a shabby-chic decoration, wind chime or small trinket to bring the whole of your landscape together. Visit your local garden centre and you’ll discover a wealth of garden wall decorations that, once hung, will perfectly complement your garden design.

Suns and moons are especially popular designs. However, that doesn’t mean that you need to stick to these alone. There’s a wealth of designs to choose from, all you need to do is make sure that your chosen design effortlessly complements colour and design of your garden.

The Front Garden Wall

The front of your home is the first thing that visitors see when arriving. Make a welcoming and distinctive impression by ensuring that your garden wall is in optimal condition. Tired of that mundane and generic garden wall? Why not erect drystone walling? It’s sure to leave a lasting impression on your guests.

For that unique look – one that complements any hard work by landscaping services in Dorset or Bath – split drystone walling designs between the brick and wrought iron. In building a wall with a base of brick, you will create a haven for flower beds, allowing them to bloom in the summer months whilst protecting them from any wind or debris.

The top half of the wrought iron fence will then allow sunlight to gently filter through the wall. This will nurture your plants, providing them with just the right amount of sunlight – and create essential privacy for your home.

The Rear Garden Wall

One of the most attractive aspects of building a rear garden wall is the privacy it affords. Even if your rear garden is set back from the main street, if it remains an open space, it can still feel exposed. Drystone walling services in Dorset and Bath can effortlessly solve this problem.

Not only will a drystone wall give your garden a superior design aesthetic, it will provide you with so much-needed privacy. Not only that, if you have small children, building a drystone wall will protect them from wandering too far away from home.

Garden Retaining Walls

Do you have a sloped garden? If so, then a retaining wall can add depth – and make the environment more accessible. Creating a patio can be nigh on impossible if you have a sloped garden. Building a retaining wall will help to spit up the environment so that you can add a patio surface.

If you want to add an extra dimension to the space, why not build a cascading effect with multiple garden retaining wall? Tom Trouton’s drystone walling services in Dorset and Bath can help you to completely re-design your garden. Turn one level into an area of vibrant, green grass, another into an area with gorgeous flowers and yet another into a vegetable patch with ease.

These are just four ideas of how drystone walling can help you to transform your garden. Interested in learning more? Contact Tom Trouton and see how our landscaping services can help you realise a superlative garden environment that’s luscious and picturesque.
