A sitting wall is a low wall built on a patio that can also serve as seating.
Typically built to the vertical height of approximately 18" to 21", a sitting wall is usually about 12" to 24" wide. This allows an individual to sit in a comfortable position.
Sitting walls may also be built in with a back rest.
Not only does it add a feature of comfort, but also can enhance the aesthetics of your sitting wall. We have built a variety of sitting walls in many various ways. Free standing sitting walls would generally be built out in the open on a relatively flat surface, as opposed to a retaining sitting wall combo. This type of wall would also be used to retain, or hold back soil, which makes it multi-functional.
One thing to consider while designing your sitting wall:
When using natural stone or decorative interlocking block, you have the option of creating curved or straight walls, depeding on your style and space, which can really add visual interest!
