A backyard patio is the perfect place to relax, unwind, and enjoy your landscape. Entertaining for large parties can require lots of extra seating for guests, and a seating wall is a fitting solution. Masonry walls add definition to the space, and they can double as casual seating for parties and events. Here’s how you can complement your patio pavers with masonry seating walls for your Lake Forest, IL, home.
