Removing our "retaining wall"... I use the term lightly
Ok so we have gotten some great ideas on these forums on what to do as far as some landscaping and we have a plan drawn out. The major obstacle is the rock wall in front of the yard. We were going to rebuild it but have decided to remove it. HOPEFULLY we can post an ad on craigslist etc and someone will want the rocks and come take them away. Not sure how realistic this is.
Anyways, my question is...once we remove the rocks and fill in any areas that need filling to get a nice slope...what could we plant there as a groundcover. Or....if you were to remove the wall, what would you do with the area? Just grass? A house up the road that is facing the main street has a very similar front yard. Theirs slopes down to the street, about 5 feet back they put a white picket fence and plant perennials in front of it. It looks very nice. The also have some trees etc. I am thinking i would rather invest the $$ in something like that (fencing) than rebuilding this wall.
