Cottage Wall Coping Stones

Saddleback Coping Stones

Often called Saddleback or Humpback coping, this traditional design has been used for centuries, and is often found in old houses with walled gardens. Replacing these can be tricky, so we decided to make our Cottage Wall Coping Stones range. Available in an array of sizes and colours, these copings are designed to mimic the look of an old Sandstone wall. Perfect for period properties, in the many beautiful rural villages across the UK that wish to maintain the look and feel of the surroundings.

All copings are supplied with a drip channel placed under both sides to ensure rain water will not run down the face of your wall. Coping must overhang the wall by a minimum of 30mm each side in order for the drip channel to function properly.

Coping Stones and Pier Caps are essential, practical and ensure your garden wall has an attractive finish while carrying out the important job of preventing rainwater dripping down the surface of your wall. This prevents damage to brickwork and render from frost damage and the unsightly build up of algae and moss.

Once you have your copings in place try using sympathetic plantings to help lessen the effects of the weather on your walls in strategic places, but always take care to ensure to avoid any damage caused by root systems and climbing plants.  Climbing shrubs can make matters worse by harbouring damp, while ivy roots can invade old, soft mortar joints.  Your walls can also create safe havens for delicate plants on the protected side.  For further advice on how to protect your garden from frost damage check out our blog here.
