What is the material used in the fence? - I know it's not galvanized steel. Just wondering what it is.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Cathy Lara added this to Up the Luck in Your Home
7. Bamboo. Heralded as one of the luckiest feng shui symbols, the enduring and hydroponic bamboo plant brings peace and luck to any environment. Bamboo also doubles as a durable barrier and decorative plant in any Zen-inspired garden or walkway.
Houzz added this to Decomposed Granite
Decomposed granite can be messy. When contained between two walls, the loose gravel and mud do not spoil the landscaping.
Debra Prinzing added this to 8 Splendid Side Yard Designs
Less is more in this utilitarian walk along the outside of a home clad in corrugated metal siding. The path is paved in easy-care decomposed granite, making it easy to navigate. The plantings are elevated to eye level, thanks to the low lumber retaining wall. Bamboo is a good choice because its roots are contained. Plus, it's an easy plant to maintain with hedge clippers.

We share the back cyclone-mesh fence with our (thankfully lovely) neighbors. We are also on the lower grade of a hill & experience a lot of rainwater runoff from their yard during our tropical wet season. We have a retaining wall forming the base of the fence. It was originally built from concrete bessa-blocks and then roughly dressed with local stone. Unfortunately the dressing was a poor job, it looks terrible, & it's starting to fail. To top off the dodgy job, someone got artistic & attempted to undulate the wall, & at some sections it bulges quite substantially into our limited yard space. I would like to re-dress the wall, install a better drainage system & plant a screen of bamboo. This wall is pretty much exactly what I want - I would pot the bamboo and the pebbles would allow drainage into a runoff gutter drain
