Here in New England, winter has arrived. Long cold nights and short days have our team at Green Leaves Landscaping dreaming about spring. Heading back outdoors for spring cleanup opens the doors for a beautiful and enjoyable summer landscape. However, landscape isn’t just about the yard and the trees. Stone wall landscaping is an element in high demand that adds tons of visual interest to any yard.
Here, we’re taking a look at a few different stone wall landscapes that are sure to add curb appeal.
Backyard stone wall landscaping
Not all plants thrive in a stone wall, so understanding different varieties is important. For instance, if you’re going for a backyard, blended look and feel, you may want to consider a creeping vine. Some like wooly creeping thyme, phlox, trumpet vines, or clematis may be the solution you’re looking for. Each of these plants offers a unique look and feel, some with flowers, others without.
No matter what you chose, a creeping vine will quickly create a waterfall effect. It’s imperative to research your plant beforehand as some species grow quickly and may provide more coverage than you bargained for.
Another common area for stone walls is walkways. Guiding your guests to and from your driveway to the front door, or perhaps the backyard, these walls can add elegance while serving a purpose. Here, you’ll want to consider trimmable shrubs or flowers that are compact. The last thing you or your guests want is to feel like you’re tangled in a jungle when trying to arrive at the front door.
Front yard landscaping
Similar to walkways, stone walls along your front landscape can be used for various reasons. From providing visual interest to creating a flat surface on an otherwise sloped landscape, these walls are often front and center. Because of that, you want to be sure that your landscape is on par.
While there is no right and wrong, you want to consider the same concerns addressed in walkway walls. However, every home and every landscape is different. So, what works for one may not necessarily work for another.
