Those are board-formed concrete planters. Horsetails can be very invasive otherwise.

Chamfering wall top edges - Looking at the form strip timing, does tooling a curved (radiused) top edge at inside & outside edges require tooling prior to the form strip? I can't see another way to do it. Fantastic design, btw!

Those are just board forms. 2x6 I believe.

Did the 2x6 's leave any wood grain pattern? If so, did it need to be sandblasted to raise the grain? Thank you.

... got a cost estimate of $30.00 per square foot for board formed concrete. This sounds way out of line and is more than natural stone. What is a reasonable rough cost for this wall?

I would actually call $30/sq ft very reasonable. There is quite a bit of work involved in making walls like this. I would have expected an even higher cost for the planters.

There are a lot of factors that go into building a concrete retaining wall. You should expect to pay $60 sq.ft for a concrete retaining wall. If you are going to add veneer such as thin brick etc...you are looking at least $15 to $20 sq.ft for the veneer part along. I'm quite sure if you're working with one contractor you may get a better deal.

decordemon added this to 7 Out-of-the-Box Retaining Wall Ideas
Here's something you may or may not have come across: wood-look concrete. How does it get that wood plank appearance? It's all about the form, my friends. When the form is created, a contractor can opt for rugged wood planks instead of super smooth panels. As the concrete dries against the rough textures of the wood planks, they leave wood grain impressions which give an entirely different dimension to the otherwise flat concrete.
