Get the look: Great ideas give that ‘wall i never’ effect
Attractive landscaping using walling in a garden will add value to your property — and bring a fresh new perspective to your outside living experience.
In most typical gardens, a competent DIY enthusiast can design and build something that meets their requirements, but if you want the wow factor you should ask the experts.
Paving and walling specialist Acheson & Glover, offers a few good ideas.
“Raised beds are simple to create and are ideal for small landscaping projects,” says the company’s outside room manager, Lauren Acheson.
“The fact that they can be built without mortar or concrete, with each stone simply slotting into place, makes them so easy to construct and we offer a variety of finishes which makes them particularly appealing.
“With our retaining wall range for example, we have designed shapes and textures that blend with the environment to create attractive and functional features.”
She added: “As the walls are mortarless they are quick and simple to build, and can be used in a variety of different features and applications within the garden environment, from simple raised planters and tree rings through to terraced gardens and patio areas.
“Both Aspen Stone and another new product, Regal Stone, have a classic face style and cut stone appearance which gives them a timeless quality, while curving designs and innovative colour are more modern. Whatever look you go for, either contemporary or traditional, a well designed outside space is an instantly enjoyable addition to any home.”
