    I think you use a few too many small pieces in the dry stack walls. They will eventually push or fall out.

    forgetting the watering "issue'

    I was thinking the same thing. If that's primarily a bluegrass blend, which much of the sod is up here, you will likely have continuous trouble in that spot.... especially if a lot of that shade is coming from pines.

    Yeah, there is alot of shade but it wont be tooo bad.. it had dried up a little and started to green out at the end of the season.. Im hoping the pieces wont fall out... the sod is a tall feuscue shade mix that downeast sod farms grows special for shade... but it was way over watered... by owners who knows.... it was a great start....
