    This is the 2nd version of the same thread with more pictures.

    I am a beginner on posting pictures so please bear with me. I resized some before, during and after pictures as discussed.

    We had to air hammer out the existing steps, reform and re-pour over the top of the old ones. That was a lot more work than we expected, they were full of steel.

    One of the "during" pictures shows how the walls were constructed without concrete block.

    Please take a look. Any feedback is welcome.

    Good job.

    Did you do the River Rock/Jack whatever.......creek bed on the left? I would recommend forming it more and breaking it up with some plants. It looks as if a truck backed up, dumped and pulled forward. Give it some shape and boundaries. Use of boulders, as done, is a +

    UR right. Plants are planned for installation in early spring along with a lot of other installations in phase two (patio, walkway, sod, plant material in beds, etc).

    Thanks to both for the input.
