How would you avoid the gabion walls being a breeding ground for snails and other beasties?
love this retaining wall w/ bench
Great idea for making a seat on top of gabion wall
integrated bench in a rock wall - Dave likes
an undesirable material is celebrated in this backyard. Instead of hauling off excess rocks during the homes remodel process, stone was kept onsite and placed in gabions. The gabions form a garden wall and bench seating.

What steps did you take to ensure that the retaining wall stays in place and what system was used?
the soil is cut out, perforated drain tile with a sock is placed at base and then as the wall is built filter fabric is placed against back of wall stone and pea stone is used for back fill. In this case the stones were battered back 1 1/2" per stone.
Love the stone wall and how it blends with house.
Ooh yea, in heaven with all the stone walls and all the windows. Really like all the greenery and flowers, and the different outdoor levels.
Steep drop from house. Could use material close in color to house to create retaining wall

homeowners three spaces that make being outside a joy. Low stucco walls create a courtyard near the front door that has as unique sense of privacy, making it a great place to pause and view the pond below. Under the deck the stucco walls wrap around a patio, creating a perfect place for a cool refuge
refuge from hot summer days. A custom-made fountain is integrated into the wall, a bed of lush flowers is woven into the bluestone, and a view to the surrounding landscape is framed by the posts of the deck above. The rear patio is made of large bluestone pieces. Grassy seams between the stone soften the
the hard surface. Towering evergreens create privacy, drifts of colorful perennials surround the seat walls, and clumps of Aspen trees define the entrance to this enchanting outdoor room.

rocks for wall. terrace back hill?
I like this rock wall for the Emeline front yard at the sidewalk!
For retaining walls. When the ground is sloped or on an incline, called a grade change, large boulders can be moved into place to create different levels, or terraces. The soil is cut back to create a ledge or a flat surface, and boulders are settled in to hold the soil back. Boulders can be mortared
together or dry set, stacked or nestled without mortar. Many times it's the sheer weight of the boulder that keeps it in place. When creating a retaining wall of any kind, remember to include weep holes, so moisture or rainwater can escape. You can do this by adding a smaller-diameter PVC pipe in between
