Retaining Wall - What type of stone is the retaining wall? Love the contrast of the colors.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Inside Out: Designs to Move a Party Outside
Add attractive outdoor games. A party doesn't really get going until everyone is together playing a game. And after a few cocktails and appetizers, your visitors will be eager to join in a friendly competition. With a game like bocce, a large number of people can play as well as watch. The court itself is quite elegant with gravel and clean lines, and the design complements the landscape when it's not being used.
Becky Harris added this to Landscape Trends: Bocce Ball Courts
I love the way this one is integrated into the landscape. The stone wall and plantings around it are breathtaking, and even the balls themselves fit right into the material palette.
