Hmmm.....you said "completed". Are you still loading pictures, as I don't see any completed shots yet? Uncapped pillars. No lights. No plantings. Beds not backfilled. LOL - new jersery sure has different definitions of "completed"!!

Design and work looks nice.

Whats with the natural stone (or is it fake stone veneer?) and the legos? That combo makes my eyes hurt!

And whats with the 4-inch drain pipe held so high for?

In 'Post 2', 1st Picture - the soldier course border on the right side of steps doesn't flow. That needs corrected.

Work looks good, I like the design. Landscaping is really going to set it off, are you doing the landscaping? I look foward to the finished pics

Andrew once the job is planted you will hardly see the walls when it fill in. Once the beds are filled in with topsoil, you wont see any 4" pipes. A few that you see are just sleeves.

Forgive me if this is a stupid question, but I'm not a hardscaping expert. What are those large blocks under the outer circular wall? Why are there gaps?

The problem with the 4" pipe isn't the visibility (even thought they are unsightly), it is the function. The drainage behind a wall has to be at the lowest level. If water were to get to the level of that pipe, youl'd better be running, as the whole thing will be ready to collapse.
