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?

Concrete - Lynne likes this look
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.
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.

formed concrete. This sounds way out of line and is more than natural stone. What is a reasonable rough cost for this wall?
exterior wood wall cladding? Are those real wood? Thanks
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 veneer such as thin
making walls like this. I would have expected an even higher cost for the planters.

mix of materials ...warm wood tones against concrete
wood-look concrete. How does it get that wood plank appearance? It's all about the form, my friends. When the form is created, a contractor can opt for rugged wood planks instead of super smooth panels. As the concrete dries against the rough textures of the wood planks, they leave wood grain impressions

urban concrete jungles, hedges are understandably rare. You may sometimes see large window boxes planted with boxwood to create miniature formal hedging, but when space is valuable, hedges aren't a priority.Here we see a hanging hedge of horizontally growing juniper conifers used to soften the concrete

CONCRETE ENTRY PLANTERS AND SIMPLE SIDEWALK
like the way this concrete delineates space and the plants seem simple
of the retaining walls. All is softened, though, by the beautifully executed and understated plantings.
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 front garden link all the beds of differing height and size because they have the same color and tone.

e the walls cast in place or prefab? THANKS
industrial concrete walls complete the perfect minimal garden.
More often in contemporary gardens, hardscaping can be the overriding design feature, as with these simple concrete retaining walls.The plantings are used to emphasize the clean lines of the walls. Grasses can be perfect to achieve this.
