"The work is all done and looks great and I wanted to say what nice people Josh and the guy helping him were. They were truly professional and I can't say enough good things about them."
-Steve Sutton, Glastonbury, 2012
Sitting Walls and Pillars
The welcoming arms of a sitting wall, or built-in stone bench, adds a vertical element of interest and a focal point to a well thought out design.
This type of wall is usually double - sided and free - standing. Used to help define an outdoor living space, the lines of a sitting wall enhance the geometry and design of the patio or walkway it is built beside.
Create the effect of a courtyard for your front entrance with sitting walls and pillars placed at the front gate. When placed around a fire feature, a double-sided wall gives additional seating for relaxing around the campfire.
An outdoor kitchen is often accented with walls too, as they work well with the stonework of the kitchen for scale and balance.
Pillars are like an exclamation point. They are used at the end of a sitting wall or can often be found welcoming guests into your home from the end of a driveway.
They look great beside a set of steps and help as a transition from one level to the next. They can act as a pedestal for a stunning flower pot of annuals or can be wired for a coach light.
