Types of building material used for retaining and seating walls.

No two retaining or seating walls have to look the same. That's why it's great to have a variety of options to choose from when creating the initial design for your hardscaping project. Our retaining walls are made using Belgard interlocking stones that are versatile, durable, and beautiful. The stones are available in an endless selection of patterns and colors and can be customized to your style.

Here are just a few of the different building materials that can be used to construct retaining and seating walls:

  • Brick Pavers - Traditionally made of clay that is formed in the shape of a rectangle then heat cured. While cobblestone brick pavers are made of natural stone that is cut into the desired shape.
  • Concrete Pavers - These pavers are made from a dry mix of sand, gravel, cement, and coloring that is pressed into molds. Pavers made from concrete creates a durable solution with endless choices of color and shape.
  • Flagstone pavers - Is a general term that refers to natural sedimentary rock. Flagstone is formed over time by heat and strong pressure this forces layers of sand, clay, or organic sediments together to form a dense, strong stone. This natural stone is cut into thin sheets and comes in varied colors.

Our installers can also do masonry work so your retaining and seating wall has a natural stone look to blend in with its surroundings.


Seating walls are the perfect outdoor addition for fire pits, patios, and outdoor kitchens.

A landscape's aesthetic quality can be immediately enhanced with the installation of a decorative seating area around an outdoor fire pit, kitchen, or patio. Plus, unlike other outdoor seating options, seating walls require little maintenance and won't rust, crack, or be faded and damaged by the sun. A seating wall can also be constructed from the same materials as a retaining wall so it can match with the rest of a property's hardscaping design.
