Garden Walls

Garden Walls – Things you should know

A garden wall can be no higher than 20 inches. When walls are installed above the height they will fail in time.

Proper installation of a garden wall includes staggering joints. Staggering the joints from row to row helps provide stability to your wall. A straight stacked wall has no stability and though it may look nice at first it will most certainly fail.

A garden wall cannot be substituted for a retaining wall. A retaining wall product is designed to retain soil and will not collapse under pressure. A garden wall is designed to create planters, tree rings, and edging.

A properly compacted base is extremely important! Without it your pavers may move as a result of base material settling over time. The base should be built with Class “A” material. Only 2 inches of base material should be compacted at a time to ensure that there will be no settling over time. We recommend renting a walk behind vibrating plate compactor from your local tool rental shop. The base should be at least 6-8 inches deep and 16 inches wide by your desired length. A level, compacted base is the best way to keep your garden wall from shifting over time.
