What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Garden Tour: Three Levels of Outdoor Living
The loose organization of the plants creates a stunning effect. The fluid movement of the grasses paired with the compact rigidity of the agave and yucca play against each other’s characteristics to create visual harmony. Simple backdrops of hedges allow the more ornamental varieties to advance to the foreground.
Becky Harris added this to 5 Spectacular Australian Homes
The site contains a series of outdoor rooms at different levels, surrounded by lush plantings and comfortable outdoor furniture like the Orbit by Dedon. This round lounge even has a canopy you can pull up to provide shade and privacy.
In some ways this terrace design is very similar to the previous one, with its white retaining walls almost dominating the garden. But I feel there is a clear difference in the planting. The strong architectural shapes of the plants balance the whole design — the plantings are more than just a fill-in.See more of this terraced Sydney garden

Codes and regulationsWith any project it is important to first be familiar with the building codes and regulations that affect you, and to make sure you comply with these when building any walls. Laws regarding engineering vary from state to state and from council to council; some areas require engineering with any wall above 600mm and other areas allow walls under 1000mm to be exempt. You need to check your local laws. If unsure it is always safer to engage an engineer, particularly if the retaining wall will support land outside your ownership, big trees or load-bearing structures.
