Outdoor natural stone walling inspiration

The tonal variation and natural texture in stone walling help add depth and visual interest to what could otherwise be a plain surface. Opt for a rugged, organic aesthetic using a free-form stone or stick with the clean lines of linear walling. Embrace a warm colour palette or choose dark, moody tones.

As you’ll see from this selection of outdoor natural stone walling inspiration, there is an abundance of aesthetics to choose from depending on your tastes, style of architecture and the application.

Here are 11 projects which use natural stone walling to complete the outdoor space.
