Seating Wall Design Ideas

One of the great options often included with a patio design is a patio seating wall. Seating walls can add to the overall appearance and function of your patio. Patio seating walls can also function as a retaining wall or a guardrail for elevated patios. Patio seating walls can be used near fire pits, hot tubs, and steps. Other ideas include Incorporating planters, columns, and even water features like a koi pond and waterfall.

Seating Wall Construction and Materials

Patio seating walls are typically constructed with cast concrete blocks, but we also build seating walls with masonry walls constructed with CMU, also known as cinder blocks. The cinder blocks can be finished with parging or veneered with natural stone, cultured stone, brick, and other natural stone choices. The capstones of the seating walls are available in many styles. Are patio designers will walk you through all the possibilities and can make your dream patio come to life.

Options For Seating Walls

Another option we often include in our patios seating walls is low-voltage lighting that can add a touch of elegance.  We can also install outdoor electrical outlets.   Many of our customers have created outdoor firepits with a seating wall.  Seating walls work well with both small and large patios.
