I built retaining walls! Can't wait to landscape.
I bought a trashed foreclosure. It's a "foresquare" colonial with a disaster of a front yard. It's a steep hill and we have a deer problem in this neighborhood. We decided the best way to deal with the hill was to terrace it. Here's a picture of the newly finished walls!
I'm looking for design suggestions in general. What to plant, where to put things, etc. I need suggestions for deer-resistant, cascading plants to use at the tops of the walls. Should we try to stain the concrete steps to match the stone? What railing do you think would look best? We will be replacing the timber retaining wall with one of the same stone shortly, and I'll be digging the rest of the grass out of the beds. Any and all suggestions are welcome!
