    Whats the story with the side of the house? I'd like to see some more of the wall construction. Looks like an impressive house.

    The Rocks were existing nest to the old patio (brick) when we started, we placed back to finish, the veg on the rocks was there to begin with the all the tyme between the steppers we did plant.

    I will have to get the in the process pictures up here soon, walls are on 10" concrete footings with 1/2" rebar, walls are backed by concrete block tarred on retaining side, stone is not veneer, all was drilled and split onsite the cut and chiseled to fit.

    What??? You mean you didn't plaster their yard with white landscape gravel like a railroad bed??? :hammerhead:

    Seriously, those are picture I like to see! Great use of plants that are properly arranged, great use of perennials, great use of stone. This is a job done by a true landscaper, not a lawn jockey turned home builder's pet contractor playing with a skid steer and an excavator.

    So are you the owner of the company that did the work, or an employee?

    You mentioned the walls are on 10-inches of concrete, how deep are the footers?

    Looks like quite a trailerhood! We just finished up a gig in a hood like that!

    Nice work, and feel free to post pics like that anytime :)

    Gorgeous! :clapping:

    People tell me I do good work, but I tell them there are better scapers out there and you've proven that!

    What kind of wall block is that?
