These look like 4" x 6" x8' pressure treated timbers.

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.

This corrogated roofing material comes in a more industrial plastic look in colors, including gray. Since we need retaining walls in so many areas and will probably want to vary materials, I've wondered if you could use something like that for retaining is a smaller section. Would be economical and has a cool graphic look that could work well as midcentury.

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
