How to Use Wallstones in Your Landscape Design

June 8, 2022

Contrary to popular belief, wallstones are very versatile. Sure, they are great for building retaining walls on your property, but they can also be used for many other applications that will beautify your home and create different zones in your backyard. All you have to do is let your creativity flow!

Retaining Walls

One of the most common uses is the retaining wall, which helps bridge different levels of ground while providing additional support. It also helps prevent landslides, solidify foundations, and facilitate access between different levels. There are a few important things to consider when choosing wallstones. First, some models are designed to build higher structures, if that is what you need. Second, strength is a very important aspect to keep in mind. Bolduc's wallstones are known to offer increased stability and strength. The combination of various wallstone colors and models will allow you to create a unique design in line with your preferences and the specific characteristics of your landscape. Well used, retaining walls will add value and character to your property.


Flowerbeds and Planters

Wallstones can be used to create raised flowerbeds and planters to complement your plants and landscape. This is a great way to define the space between plants, add depth, and add a unique decorative touch to your home. Unlike wood, concrete wallstones do not deteriorate over time. They are much more durable and require little maintenance. Some wallstone models allow you to create curves or straight lines, depending on your taste and the style of your home.


Standing Bars and BBQ Counters

Outdoor living has grown in popularity over the past few years. If you want to build a kitchen area on your deck to get the most out of your space -with countertops, storage space, and easy access to the barbecue- Bolduc's wallstones are just what you need to create the standing bar or BBQ counter of your dreams. You can choose from a wide range of colors, textures, and sizes to create a unique outdoor kitchen space that will perfectly complement your home.


Wood or Gas Firepits

Wallstones are also great for creating firepit areas to enjoy the summer evenings with family and friends. Concrete wallstones are a much safer option against heat, in addition to being very resistant and durable. You can choose from several options to enhance your patio and have a firepit that perfectly matches your outdoor decor.



If you are looking to bring some peace and calm into your backyard, a waterfall is what you need. Bolduc's wallstones come in a variety of styles, shapes, and colors to help you create the waterfall of your dreams. This unique element is sure to add an elegant and distinctive touch to your outdoor space.


Pool Areas

Wallstones are sometimes used to add extra charm to pool areas. Installing a wall on one or more sides of the pool can be a great way to define the space and add privacy for a cozier atmosphere. It is also an interesting way to make a lost or limited space on the edge of a pool more aesthetic. If you plan to install a semi in-ground pool, a Bolduc wall is a great option to give it a nice aesthetic finish.



Another original and functional use for wallstones is to make a bench out of them! Around a firepit or a spa, they make aesthetic and practical seating walls for your guests. They are as convenient as they are functional since they can bridge different ground levels and serve as seats at the same time. Bolduc's wall blocks offer you many possibilities for designing the most beautiful benches that will add a decorative touch to your backyard. Plus, concrete is a long-lasting material that requires little maintenance. No more searching for a stack of chairs to accommodate your guests -you'll always be ready to welcome friends and family!


Window Wells

If regular window wells don't appeal to you, wallstones are the solution! They can be used to build long-lasting window wells with a much more aesthetic finish. Bolduc's concrete wallstones come in a variety of designs, colors, and textures to match the rest of your landscape and home exterior.


Patios and Decks

Wallstones are often very useful to set up patios and decks. If you need to build your deck on an elevated area, wallstones will provide excellent stability while adding style to your project. In addition, installing them under a patio or deck is a good way to define specific zones in your landscape. Bolduc's wallstones are available in a wide range of shapes and sizes to match your choice of pavement. They are an excellent way to create a cozy gathering spot in your backyard.
