What type of brick/stone should we use for our retaining wall/bench?

6 years ago

We are completing a paver patio with red/charcoal holland pavers in a herringbone pattern. Adjacent to the patio we will have a retaining wall that doubles as a bench. I'm struggling with what type of brick/stone would work well. We like classic looks. The home itself was built in 1959 with a very mid-century feel to it. We also plan to put a gas fire pit in the middle area of the patio. Should we use the same material on the fire pit as the retaining wall? We think yes, but what to use? Thanks for your help!
