SF Retro Modern

An Eichler remodel with a steep hillside garden. This project pushed the limits of creating flat space where there was none! The angular architecture of the garden is balanced with bold and textural free form plantings. Color, texture and juxtaposed angles.

Behind the Retaining wall - I'm building a barn on a steep slope and love the look of this wall. How was the wall built? Is the wood just cladding material?

When you say 3x12 - 3in wide, 12in high and x lenght? Looking to do something similar in our backyard. Thanks in advance.

Hi, this would greatly depend on soil type, micro climate and how steep the slope is. Can you provide more info?

This wall was constructed using 4x6 pressure treated posts set into 5' deep concrete piers with 3x12 pressure treated boards bolted to the back of the posts. The front cladding is vertical grain 1x4 cedar which has been stained. Another 'finish' idea. May be too much wood overall.
