Walls and brickwork are an attractive means of reclaiming space and putting it to work for you, transforming the landscape of your property. Through excavation and retaining walls you can achieve many purposeful and traditional effects, from a tiered level patio with a brick barbecue to adding function and depth with a new driveway . Walls and brickwork can also provide added security and lighting to the front and mood lighting in the rear garden.
Concrete masonry unit walls use standard cinder blocks for the basis. However, they can be faced in a number of ways, including paint, stucco, and natural stone facades.
Natural stone is a classy choice for garden walls, though it can be quite expensive. Stone can be dry-stacked, meaning it is laid without mortar, or each individual stone can be held in place with mortar.
Brick privacy walls are not as popular as they once were, but they have a historic elegance that is hard to beat. They require mortar and a high degree of masonry skill to pull off successfully, however.

Walls over three feet in height generally require a building permit and are best left to a qualified landscape contractor. Extensive knowledge is required to engineer taller walls for safety and durability so make sure you find someone that specializes in this type of construction and carries the proper insurance.
