What Houzz contributors are saying:

J. Peterson Garden Design added this to Roll With Boulders for High Landscape Impact
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 the rocks to act as a drain.
