paintings of the 20th-century artist Mondrian. Its strong geometric-shape raised beds of differing heights are reinforced by the width of the retaining walls. All is softened, though, by the beautifully executed and understated plantings.
links the house to the garden as well as to the contours of the landscape. While it is vitally important that the size and height of the retaining walls are in balance with the house and garden, it is equally important that the plantings don't overpower the hardscape.The precise plantings in this terraced

Where did you get the lights on the retaining wall?
How did you get the wood weathered look on the concrete wall?
How did you get the wood weathered look on the concrete walls? Thanks !
What did you use to create the modern stripe design on the concrete stepping blocks?
The wood look was achieved by actually attaching rough cut 2x4's to our concrete forms- (but you can actually buy a form liner that will have this same pattern- it is more expensive to do it that way especially if it is a one time use...but the forms are at www.formliners.com Rough Cut
The Entire project consisted of FX Luminaire LED Lighting components. These particular lights are the MS wall lights that come in 13 different finish options. www.fxl.com

How thick are these walls? Did you color the cement? Love the look.
How did you get this color concrete?
We just did poured in place concrete and it doesn't look this dark. How do we get it this color? Is it painted?
Can you please explain how the concrete wall was made?
particular the finish? I have a bare block wall that I am trying to learn how to render in a polished concrete type effect but cannot find a way to do it. Thanks
are set up and secured in place. Then the concrete is poured between the pieces. After it sets and dries, the forms are removed, a craftsman adds some finishing touches with acid stain and/or sealer, and KAZAM! you've got modern retaining walls.
create a dynamic edge to this gravel garden. The zigs and zags of the retaining wall are more than functional — they're an important design ingredient. Moreover, this approach creates bonus planting space that a straight retaining wall wouldn't offer.

board formed concrete. This sounds way out of line and is more than natural stone. What is a reasonable rough cost for this wall?
What material/ brand did you use for the exterior wood wall cladding? Are those real wood? Thanks
Those are board-formed concrete planters. Horsetails can be very invasive otherwise.
There are a lot of factors that go into building a concrete retaining wall. You should expect to pay $60 sq.ft for a concrete retaining wall. If you are going to add
I would actually call $30/sq ft very reasonable. There is quite a bit of work involved in making walls like this. I would have expected an even higher cost for the planters.

curious as to whether this is cost effective rather than continuation of the block retaining wall. What is the cost of these steel lengths? I am thinking of doing something very similar but love the idea of retaining long stretches with steel
