It should be remembered that a front wall can be created in a huge variety of shapes and sizes. It does not necessarily need to be a solid structure.
Installing a rock wall is an ideal way to achieve a less formal structure. Large stones can be stacked on top of each other with the gaps filled with stones of smaller size, or a series of open spaces left between. These spaces can alternatively be filled with trees, flowers or plants. Alternatively, they can be left open as informal entrances to your property.
This cost-effective method of having a front wall constructed gives scope to use the type of stone material that suits your desired aesthetic.

Those in search of a natural, highly creative style could look at the construction of an undulating wall. This type of design is a classic, beautiful option and will curve as desired through greenery and flowers. The impression created is one of timelessness.
Such a design can be achieved through the use of rough stones, cement blocks or traditional masonry materials and once lined with your preferred foliage brings a real touch of country elegance to your home.
