Living Wall This tiny alleyway didn’t have much room for a garden. Designer Seth Boor made use of the space off of the bedroom by designing a custom succulent garden wall hanging. The garden wall adds an unexpected touch of greenery in an otherwise urban space. Hanging Out The charcoal gray picket fence features a hanging basket filled with ivy and brightly colored geraniums. The color of the geraniums pops against the fence and is carried through to the backyard. Design by Virginia Rockwell Stylish Sprinkling System This wooden sculpture, designed by landscape artist Jamie Durie, functions as both an eye-pleaser and watering system. A misting system installed within the recycled wood beams waters the surrounding vines and epiphytes. Italian-Inspired Warmth The stucco wall features an outdoor fireplace with Tuscan elements, including a mixture of stone and brick. Designer Scott Cohen placed oversized ceramic vases on each side of the fireplace for a rustic look. An Italian Vacation HGTV fan twd33 didn’t like the wall in her backyard because it felt like a prison. She worked with what she had by using mortar to transform the wall into an Italian getaway. The rustic look, along with Italian-inspired colors, makes the space feel like you’re in a Tuscan villa. Oceanside Dining Outdoor dining is taken to a new level with Pamela Berstler’s design. The retaining wall gives privacy while still allowing for a perfect ocean view. When guests are done dining, they can relax on the daybed at the lower-level lounge area. Playful Update This space wasn’t much of a backyard because it’s placed between three buildings. Designer Bonnie Bridges updated an unsightly concrete foundation into a playful element by painting it bright orange, which gives the space an inviting feel. The reclaimed wood shelf is topped with potted plants to add greenery to the industrial-style space. No Problem Here Sometimes you’re faced with unwanted elements in your backyard. Designer Heather Hardcastle transformed this old problem wall into an eye-pleaser with hanging moss baskets and a one-of-a-kind water feature. These simple additions give the backyard an entirely new cottage-style look. Urban Yet Inviting HGTV fan PHLpavilion created the perfect balance between urban and inviting in this colorful outdoor space. The dining area, great for entertaining any number of guests, is separated by a colorful plexi-paneled wall. Shining Moment The glowing stacked glass adds a sparkling element and texture to the edge of the stone water feature wall. The waterfall shines from the underwater lighting, making the wall the focal point in this backyard. Design by Morgan Holt Mediterranean Masks Clay masks adorn the cement wall in this Mediterranean-style outdoor space. Designer Pamela Berstler surrounds the sandstone bench with pittosporum trees to create needed shade on hot summer days. Fenced Background The white, fenced wall is the backdrop to a custom-made, 6-foot bench with built-in storage. The patio was once an empty space between the master bedroom and garage, but now it’s a place to entertain guests or enjoy some outdoor privacy. Design by HGTV fan vr4jen. Private Screening The raw cedar salt wall acts as a screen for unappealing trash cans and also supports a steel awning that frames the entry door. Designer Seth Boor designed the screen to create a sense of arrival while maintaining privacy. Luxurious Curtain Wall The curtain panels act as a wall in this pool pavilion. HGTV fan arcadiadesign added the curtains to bring luxurious privacy while also protecting against wind without a big wall to make the space feel closed. The daybed makes this spot perfect to read a book and relax. European Escape A moss-covered wall, featuring a European lion wall fountain, surrounds this backyard. The hanging lanterns on both sides of the fountain create an intimate space during evening gatherings. Design by HGTV fan moredesign.

How to Design Your Garden Wall Design Considerations: Elements to Add to Your Garden Wall Straight Lines and Curves Mother Nature rarely draws a straight line. Not only will curved designs feel more natural, they are actually easier to build too! Free flowing curves will grace any garden or landscape. If straight lines and corners are your choice, use AB Junior or AB Jumbo Junior – both offer corner blocks, making 90° turns easy to build. Colours Colour selection is key to a great design. Be sure to consider the total composition – house, pavements, and bed mulch – and find the look that's right for you. Curves Corners Terraces Consider a layered look in your garden design. You’ll love the way garden wall flows. Create a series of raised garden beds, or tackle a tricky slope by turning one wall into two. Structure Maximum heights shown in sandy soil Be careful not to try and retain too much with the garden wall line of blocks. These lighter duty blocks are great for smaller wall projects. AB Garden Accent up to 24 in. (600 mm), AB Junior up to 30 in. (750 mm), and AB Jumbo Junior up to 36 in. (900 mm) – with sandy soils and no extra weight above the wall. The maximum wall heights above are for walls with level grades above and below the wall, and no added weight – “surcharges” – from driveways, swimming pools, etc… If your project has steep slopes above or below the wall, or extra weight from surcharges, ask your AB Dealer about our heavier duty products found in the Retaining Wall Collection Be sure to follow our recommended maximum wall heights.

hybrid design–part wall, part arbor a good example of how garden structures can be closely tied to the architecture of the house and still work to define the outdoor environment. Although this adobe archway is part of a wall, the gateway role it plays for the patio area is all arbor.

Like hidden ruins stumbled upon on a walk in the woods, a garden wall complete with windows makes a striking garden feature. It also provides an excellent wind block, making it a great place for a sitting area.

What makes retaining walls so challenging is their strength, which is best illustrated by the incredible loads they carry, known as lateral earth pressure. This is created by more than just the weight of soil. Water behind the wall causes buildup of hydrostatic pressure which is the reason for most wall failures. Only through adequately designed drainage structures and waterproofing can the best designed wall survive over time.

The garden – I’d love a traditional walled garden like this one, with a paved area for outdoor dining and plenty of flowerbeds. A sizeable lawn would be great, too, but as it’s only fantasy, can I ask that it cuts itself? What does your Dream Houzz look like? Share a link to your fantasy home ideabook in the Comments below.

This door marks the entrance to a walled garden. Notice how it creates a totally different feeling and sense of anticipation than does the bridge in the previous photograph. You may feel that an old-world cottage garden, full of billowy flowers and fragrance, lies beyond.

A vibrant paint job can really lift a small courtyard garden, with pale paint colours on the walls creating the illusion of more space. Here, the garden furniture ties in with the shed, trellis and raised beds to create a bright, coordinated outdoor room. Choosing bold colours will help to brighten your mood on even the dullest of British summer days!

At the back of this long, narrow garden, brick pillars support a pair of salvaged iron gates. The gates create a feeling of grandeur and lead the eye toward a statue. Gates of any style, whether wooden or iron, help create an entrance, divide areas and provide spaces on each side for plants. Any break in a wall where you can put gates or an old wooden door will make the space beyond feel like a secret hideaway and encourage the feeling of a private world further on.
