What Houzz contributors are saying:

decordemon added this to 7 Out-of-the-Box Retaining Wall Ideas
Poured concrete is simple, sleek and surprisingly sophisticated. Did you ever wonder exactly how this is made? Perhaps you thought a huge truck schlepped each piece over, then champion strongmen unloaded them one at a time? Nope! Poured concrete is all about molds and forms. Usually, plywood forms are set up and secured in place. Then the concrete is poured between the pieces. After it sets and dries, the forms are removed, a craftsman adds some finishing touches with acid stain and/or sealer, and KAZAM! you've got modern retaining walls.
Debra Prinzing added this to Keep Your Garden in Lines
Why use a straight line when you can make it zigzag? I love these stair-step raised planters that create a dynamic edge to this gravel garden. The zigs and zags of the retaining wall are more than functional — they're an important design ingredient. Moreover, this approach creates bonus planting space that a straight retaining wall wouldn't offer.

I like these planters... maybe a better choice than my idea with the barn style troughs... this style could then be used with the steps, levels... adding consistency, or perhaps we do these up close for landscape and still do the barn trough style for the more casual vegetable gardens further down
