    We wish we could do those big jobs but we dont have that kind of room in the back yards of densely populated Chicago

    Here's a few from one I just finished. Last one for this year :drinkup: Pics are b4 stabilizing sand, and a few more little cap cuts where the terraced ends start. Too late up here for plants.... although customer did line the walk with some fake Christmas trees :rolleyes:

    Looks great GM! I love the design w/ the terraces. Plantings will really make that look awesome. Great work

    Thanks CG. They were afraid that wall was going to look like a big cement wall -- which of course, it wouldn't -- so I tried to design a little extra character into it. Although I don't usually like to NOT cap terraces, the hollow Allan Block would have actually provided more planting area if the lower terraces were not capped. Not a lot of planting room there now. Probably some wave petunia or crawling Verbena will look nice "flowing" over the wall.

    OBTW, your stuff.... nice... really, really nice. :waving:

    Great idea GM. I picture on the top terrace a weeping Norway with a mix of some creeping perennials and maybe some soft ground cover juniper to hang over the wall on the lower terraces. Thanks for the kudos. It looks like you do some awesome stuff yourself....got any more pics?
