It's amazing how people look at a photo make a comment and not read the article... Weird questions... Anyway, this wall is a major safety hazard. It would've looked amazing if they had built another 24" of height to it. It looks awesome but the safety hazard of child/person walking in the dark is tremendous.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Get a Jump on a Cool-Season Vegetable Garden
Give back to your garden. Fill in the empty spots in your landscape with a cover crop. While you may end up with more fava beans than you know what to do with, that’s the idea. These crops aren’t grown for food; instead, they are tilled or dug into the soil as amendments. There are a number of options available. Legumes, as fava beans and clovers, help add nitrogen to the soil; grasses add organic matter. In this photo, clover is used to cover a hillside, but it would work just as well in a vegetable garden.

Annie Thornton added this to 7 Low-Maintenance Lawn Alternatives
Clover(Trifolium repens)A member of the legume family, clover is a tough-as-nails lawn alternative, thriving in sun to partial shade and needing no fertilizing. It'll take a wide range of soils with a wide pH range, and is best adapted to zones 5 to 8. It's also a little more forgiving of foot traffic than moss is, but will not appreciate heavy running and playing — something to keep in mind if you have animals and small children. Although it's native to Europe, North Africa and West Asia, clover is well adapted to grassy areas across the United States.Growing tips: Sow seeds in the spring after nighttime temperatures are consistently higher than 40 degrees. Keep the soil moist until the clover germinates (sprouts).
Falon Land Studio LLC added this to How to Switch to an Organic Landscape Plan
Living fertilizer. White clover (Trifolium repens) is a nitrogen-fixing low ground cover plant that adds nitrogen to the soil. It does well in nutrient-poor soils and can make a lovely lawn addition. Add clover to your lawn and let the bees and pollinators have a great time. Clover is very easy to maintain and looks graceful as a naturalized clump at the edge of a lawn or planting bed. Adding a “living fertilizer” like clover contributes to a healthy soil that is rich with nutrients.

trifolium repens (clover),wide range of soils, zone 5-8, more forgiving to foot traffic than moss but no heavy running/playing, sow seeds in spring after nighttime temps are higher than 40F and keep soil moist until it sprouts

Fill in the empty spots in your landscape with a cover crop. While you may end up with more fava beans than you know what to do with, that’s the idea. These crops aren’t grown for food; instead, they are tilled or dug into the soil as amendments. There are a number of options available. Legumes, as fava beans and clovers, help add nitrogen to the soil; grasses add organic matter. In this photo, clover is used to cover a hillside, but it would work just as well in a vegetable garden.
