    I have a job that we need to put a wall in followed by a flagstone patio. My question is what is the average sitting wall height when using block that is in 6 inch increments (versa Lok) followed with a cap?

    Regardless of block / stone / log ht - seat walls are typically 18" high. Some are 21".

    If you measure your dining room chairs, or your clients dining room chairs - they're most likely 18".

    Did the same thing on this last patio. I said 18. Client said 24! I said sit in this chair, is it comfortable? Measured it and it was 18. Done.
