Seat walls are freestanding, short walls (typically about 18” tall), that are useful in defining a space and providing extra seating space when needed. They also add some weight aesthetically to a patio or sitting area.
Material options are many and can be coordinated with other structures such as kitchens or columns to bring cohesion to a landscape scheme.
Proper installation includes preparing the base commensurate with the chosen materials. Man-made block seat walls should incorporate buried courses to add stability, while natural stone mortared walls require a concrete foundation anchored below the frost line.
