If you have experience in the garden, or any outdoor spaces, you know that plants are hard to control. And in middle Tn, especially, anywhere you have sunlight, weeds and Bermuda grass will grow. To keep weeds out of your beds, a garden wall is a wonderful option.
Keep weeds out
If you have ever tried maintaining a garden bed on your property, you know it’s never easy to keep weeds out. With a natural stone garden border, weeds are kept far away from the bed. The weeds would have to climb much further over the top to infiltrate your beds, and the footer keeps runner roots out from plants like Bermuda that will try to go under.
Form and Function
A garden wall is ideal functionally for beds that get a lot of weeds, and aesthetically for anyone looking for their beds to make a real statement. These garden walls also serve as a visual anchor, drawing in most of the attention of anyone walking by, and shifting their eyes in and directing their attention right to the beds.
Natural stone is one of our favorite materials for a wall like this, since it has more organic edges, and will flow well with curved beds like the one pictured here. We have another main material we like to use for walls as well, if natural stone isn’t really your style. Pavers are much more uniform and will aid in symmetrical and more formal or modern themes.
Natural stone is one of the best available materials for any kind of hardscape. Natural stone comes in a range of colors from a warm reddish brown, to a bluish gray. It can come in small or big pieces in a variety of thicknesses, and always has a natural edge to it, leaving you with a very organic looking, inviting wall. Nothing pops quite like natural stone for the face and cap of your wall.
There are many patterns to choose from, and a wide range of size for each individual piece. The regularity of the pattern as well as the clean lines along the edge convey a well-kept modern feel, that goes well with a more formal styled home. Pavers work well with themes of symmetry, and work well with sharp angles. The color, texture, pattern, and size of each individual paver are all variable, leaving you with limitless choices for the look and feel of your wall.
