A rock may seem like just a rock, but when it comes to stacked stone, it’s so much more than that. There’s no easier way to take your hardscaping to the next level than by incorporating the texture, dimension, and beauty of stacked stone panels into your landscape. But with so many stacked stone options, how can you determine which is the right choice to bring your vision to life and elevate your landscape. We’ve outlined the key benefits of stacked stone hardscaping and our favorite options for adding stacked stone elements into outdoor space.

The Benefits of Stacked Stone Hardscaping

It’s no surprise that you’re considering stacked stone to elevate the look and feel of your home’s landscape. With a myriad of benefits, you can incorporate it into your backyard in a variety of ways to bring your vision to life. Here are a few of the benefits you’ll experience from stacked stone hardscaping:

Creates Definition Within the Space

A backyard is often a large, open space — and without any sort of defining lines or boundaries, the area can seem overwhelming. Incorporating a stacked stone wall within your backyard can help you define the various areas into outdoor “rooms.” With a stone wall, you can separate your seated patio area from the garden as well as other areas like a pool.

Adds Dimension and Visual Appeal

Stacked stone tile can add visual appeal and dimension to your backyard, which is a great option when you have a large backyard. Use beautiful retaining walls to add layers to your landscape or garden to stack your flowers, plants, and herbs in a stunning display. Not only will this create a beautiful appearance, but will allow your plants to flourish as they receive optimal sunshine.

Improves Your Backyard’s Irrigation

A major benefit for many homeowners is that a stacked stone retaining wall can improve your backyard’s irrigation by trapping and directing water where it’s needed. The added structural integrity prevents the erosion of your landscape. Along with properly watering your greenery, a beautiful retaining wall can prevent water runoff from pooling near your basement or driveway.

Enhances the Appearance of Your Landscape

With an abundance of outdoor furniture paired with your outdoor fireplace with a backdrop of greenery, your backyard can look very busy. The contrasting colors can be extremely distracting, making it difficult for you to relax and enjoy your outdoor living space. Adding a stacked stone wall tile creates a neutral backdrop that can help balance the existing color scheme and highlight the areas that you wish to accentuate. 

Improves Safety with Fire-Resistant Structures

If you’re looking to add an outdoor fireplace to your backyard, look no further than stacked stone. You can have peace of mind knowing your family will enjoy many nights surrounding the fire enjoying homemade pizzas and late-night chats. Because rock is flame-resistant, stacked stone tile offers a safe solution to create an outdoor fireplace.
