Vertical Landscaping Elements – Walls, Steps & Pillars

Pool and backyard landscaping

What elevates a landscape design literally and figuratively? Vertical landscaping elements! Have you ever been admiring a landscape design and wondered what sets it apart from other designs you’ve seen? Chances are, it is the depth and dimension that has been carefully styled into the landscape design by incorporating vertical landscape elements. A professional landscape design goes beyond enhancing the ground, it will include the addition of vertical elements too. Vertical elements such as raised patios, retaining walls, seating benches, water/fire features, or pillars, add multi-dimension and help create a statement.

Vertical landscaping elements create depth and dimension by breaking up hard lines to create visual interest and define the space. Different building materials and textures are used to enhance vertical elements to create a statement in your landscape.
