What is a Landscaping Knee Wall?

Real Estate Agent with TOUCHSTONE REAL ESTATE SL3537832

Yesterday I shared about outdoor living and in one of the comments I mentioned Knee Walls.  Decided to follow up today with what they are, what they look like and why you might consider adding one.  Knee Walls are about knee high and in The Villages you are seeing more and more of them as folks are adding a seating area to the front of their homes.  Knee walls can replace landscaping around the front entryway that can be a problem area.  When we replaced our driveway, we added pavers across the entire front of home which was a landscaping problem.

Most homes here have a lanai which is normally in the rear of the home but with a Knee Wall you now can have outside living in the front of the home.  Front of your home faces east, sunrise, faces west sunset.  Also, many people walk for exercise, next thing you know you are visiting with a neighbor!  Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Very cool, I have not seen that trend in the front yard, especially fire pits.

I have sat on a knee wall more than a few times in my lifetime and believe it or not, I have often had an adult libation in hand while sitting on the knee wall, haha.

Good morning D(ck. My drinking buddy from afar, Brian England, like any place he can park the body and consumme an adult libation. A knee wall is convenient. Enjoy your day.

Hi Dick- I'm not sure I've seen these or perhaps didn't pay attention to them. They make sense  in certain areas.

It is a very common form of construction and used a lot with homes that are on a sloping lot. that allows for windows to be used to offer light instead of a solid concrete wall.
