Freestanding Landscape Walls & Retaining Wall Blocks

Freestanding Walls Vs. Retaining Walls: Understand the Differences In Wall Systems

When selecting the right wall for your outdoor landscape, it’s important to know what type you need. Retaining walls and freestanding walls both serve different purposes, and Belgard has paver wall blocks to match your desired look and functionality.

The position of a home on flat or sloping ground is typically what determines if a freestanding wall or a retaining wall is required. Freestanding walls are better used when the ground is flat, and are more commonly used to divide landscapes into different areas, helping to break up open space and add visual interest to your yard.

Retaining walls are required for slopes and structural support purposes, as they use footings to hold a wall in place and better retain soil.

Belgard offers a full line of landscape wall blocks and concrete pavers in natural color blends to complement any color scheme. And with textures that emulate the look of tumbled stone, stacked stone, chiseled stone or quarried stone, there’s a look to complement any architectural style.

In addition to retaining walls, project ideas include outdoor fire pits, stone water features, outdoor kitchens and fireplaces, built-in planters, pillars and garden walls of various heights. Our paver wall blocks can also wrap columns, hide utilities, build steps and more.
