They might be river birch, Betula nigra. The bark peels off in layers and looks very cool.

I just want to say that I love what you are doing. The layout is inspired and I love the concrete. Are you at liberty to tell me the particular concrete mix you are using for the walls.. I know its reinforced, but what type of cement, sand do you use and in what proportion and what is your base?. I am learning to use concrete, but its taking time. Do you know a good book?

I have some projects in my rear yard, including retaining walls like these (although straight, not curved) and a sunken courtyard. I would *really* like to know how to specify a smooth concrete wall like this for both. Any advice on how to clearly specify that effect - including what type of concrete and how it should be formed, smoothed, or treated - is greatly appreciated. Thank you. (Brooklyn , NY)

How expensive is building the concrete wall? - I'm looking to build something similar in my backyard and was wondering how much it costs to build these concrete walls? Mine don't have to be curved. Would that make a difference?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Ronique Gibson added this to 7 Everyday Ways for Going Greener at Home
Plant natives: Outdoor landscaping doesn't have to be labor intensive. For a no-fuss landscape, use native grasses and xeriscaping for less water usage. Save time and water with a drip system connected to your home's runoff drainage system.
