If you want more information on dealing with the APC you can contact me.

An SRW will last alot longer in those harsh environments if built right and will get approval easier. Natural walls have alot more red tape but may look nicer in that environment. Pick your poison.

Our project can be seen at this link on page 40:

Ok I'm impressed! Thats a HUGE!!! Job! Wow, no wonder it took so long for approvals. It was worth the wait. That Coventry wall takes a lot of time to layout and it appears very straight and randomized nicely.

Great Job!

i love the rocks and the trees, i can see where you might want some better steps... maybe just rip up the timbers and get some big steppers to match the color of your boulders I wouldn't use anything manmade you've already got what people pay big bucks for us to create
