    Alright, I am getting close to done with a big wall job I've been working on. Like I said, I'm not quite done, but getting close. Let me know what you think. Now for my questions; asically do you think it would look best with a big bed between the two walls, filled with mulch and some plants?? What plants, any suggestions?? Also, do you think I'll be able to get any grass growing this year, just by planting and strawing?? Thanks

    Since I'm here and had taken some pics, here are a few more, one of my rig, and one of some baby rabbits I found and took care of for a while..

    By changing the pictures to .JPG's you will minimize the size of the file and the hours it takes for us dialog people to download it! Please look into doing this! As far as grass, it all depends on the weather. Sometimes it gets darn cold early in this part of the country. I would suggest either using sod or throwing down some seed, and then planning on throwing more down in the spring.

    hey sorry about that, I didn't realize I had them as bmp's, I thought I had already converted them, I'll repost them as jpg's tonight.
    By the way, thanks on the truck. I love it too.

    Nice job on the wall! Looks Great! That truck...did I see a For Sale Sign on that? LOL Maybe throw in a few Blue Pacific Juniper for ground cover also. Curious- What was your bid for the wall? I hope you made a pretty penny...Nice job.

    Looks good! I would go with plant low growing materail. The area looks to small for grass.

    I made $12,500 on it.
    as for the truck, I could put a for sale sign in it for you, but I don't think you'd like the price tag.... that's the only part I don't like about it.

    You do a great looking job like that and people driving by can't get your name and phone number off the truck ? :confused:

    I would run the discharges into 4" tile, down to the established turf, use those green pop up lawn caps for the discharge end. Carpet junipers staggered pattern, along the edge of the lower tier. Shredded cedar mulch around and in back of the carpet junipers, maybe a few Trumpet Lilly along the back of the first tier. Upper tier: Columnar Taxus to where the porch railing ends. If they want privacy then skyrocket junipers 4-5' along upper tier edge. If they want the view then shrub roses staggered. Mulch all areas with shredded cedar. Nothing that requires irrigation to be run into the raised beds should ever be planted. The above plant material needs about a thimble full of water a month.
    Again, job looks outstanding.:)

    Best of luck,
