With many bespoke wall dressing elements available in the market, it becomes necessary to know which feature will work for you.
While a garden is a must to offer some solace in the laps of nature in the middle of the city’s hodgepodge, a garden wall is also a must to keep unwanted visitors out. The beauty of an outdoor landscape can elevate the value of your entire property. Now there are tons of elements to beautify one’s garden, but not many options to enhance the garden wall.

You probably have heard of pedestals, plinths, piers, pillar caps, porticos and columns that go on or around the walls of your home and garden to provide a secure and statement design. We will explain to you what these bespoke features are and how they can enhance the design layout of your living space.
First of all, let’s talk about pier caps, what they are, what types of pier caps are there and which ones are better. Pier caps, which are also known as capitals, cappers, tops and coping stones, are a simple and effective medium to increase the beauty of your brick or concrete pier and fence. Once placed atop piers, natural stone pier caps create a classic look that adds instant charm to your fence. They mostly work in an outdoor space.
Natural stone accents are always a good idea when revamping any space in your home, especially the garden. Outdoor pillars become an integral part of your design and must be the symbol of luxury, which remains incomplete without a quality pier cap on the top. Stone pier caps include the most popular ones – marble pier caps and limestone pier piling caps.
The Limestone Pier Cap is made from limestone, a sedimentary rock that is composed of several minerals and calcium substances that make it a durable addition to your outdoor settings.
Natural stone is one of the most durable and strong construction materials there is. After enduring immense pressure beneath the earth’s surface, natural stone such as marble, limestone, granite, travertine, onyx and others, can withstand the elements of nature without sustaining any damage. These qualities make the natural stones a perfect choice to manufacture pier caps.
Whereas cast stone pier cap is an attractive feature, but it does not have the same endurance capacity as the natural stone pier caps. Sitting on top of a gate pier, post or pillar, cast stone pillar caps will offer protection to these elements and will provide the charming finishing touch to any entrance or fence. However, they are quite vulnerable to extreme temperatures and can crack, ruining the entire setting.
Therefore, manufacturing and purchasing a natural stone pier cap would be advisable.
