The material looks like steel. I am curious as to whether this is cost effective rather than continuation of the block retaining wall. What is the cost of these steel lengths? I am thinking of doing something very similar but love the idea of retaining long stretches with steel

A combination of concrete and metal in this shot works as a defined edge for the lawn, as a retaining wall for a raised planting bed, and as a design statement in the landscape.
