What Houzz contributors are saying:
Secure your borders. The most obvious place you’ll find a garden wall or fence is along the property lines. In tract house subdivisions, expedience and cost frequently result in not much more than a simple wood fence. This approach meets the developer’s needs but contributes very little, aesthetically speaking. In contrast, this classic, beautifully crafted brick wall not only defines a peaceful courtyard, but also is tall and solidly built, assuring security. Another benefit of masonry walls is their rigidity and density, blocking and reflecting unwanted noise.
