This is so beautiful! Are the steel walls in the ground or ground level. If they are in the ground what was the process?

. The house was constructed on unstable former marsh land. In order to stabilize the area, the entire garden space was excavated down to a depth of approximately 15-20 feet to remove organic material. Engineered fill replaced this soil and the area was allowed to settle for several months prior to construction. Heliocoil pilings were then used to support the entire steel wall structure and to create support for the very largest boulders. Boulders were first set. The corten steel plate was bent on site, attached to these pilings, and templates created in order to cut the steel around the boulders. Access to the site was very limited. In order for machinery to reach the back of the property, a reinforced “road’ was created between the adjacent property and the house with barely enough space for the excavator to travel to the lower level. Moving each boulder and large tree to the back of the site was a very slow and challenging process. n.

Amy Renea added this to Stone Works Wonders
Striking Stone Designs The steel sides of this raised bed surround a large boulder for a waterfall effect. The rock seems to cascade over the sides of the planter.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to How to Design a Great Garden on a Sloped Lot
A good metal fabricator can also cut stone into the wall, as shown here, for an unexpected custom look.

The granite boulder was not moved, but integrated into the wall. We can do that on the house side of the chicken meadow hill rather than having the stacking bricks just stop when we get to the boulders we can't move.
