Nice work! The lighted edging looks like something you would see in Florida.

Work looks beautiful, nice artistic flair. The large retaining wall appears to have the base course at or above grade - is there more to that project or is there a buried course or two that isn't showing up in the pics?

There is a footing under the wall and 6 inches of road base got installed and compacted after back filling, along with 3 inches of decorative salt and pepper gravel to finish it.

Why didnt you fill and compact the wall as you built it? Does it have grid? Seems about 6' tall

Love the curb work, what setup do you have? Post more pics please, thanks.
Did you do the driveway or just color it?

I was brought in to repair the work done by another gentleman, the wall runs 4ft and 5ft, the footing wasn't even needed in this case in my opinion. There is another tear below as well.
