Modiano Design
D-Crain, did you have the steel retaining walls custom made or you used some sot of recycled material? If recycled, could you tell me from where? Thanks!

D-CRAIN Design and Construction
D-Crain is a design-build firm. All of the steel installations have been designed, coordinated and installed by our team. Most of our steelwork is fabricated on-site. This allows us to make accommodations on-site for the specific terrain of each project.

Steel specifications vary from project to project, as each site poses unique challenges. Some projects require us to engage a structural and hydrostatic engineer as well. We highly recommend working with your local hardscape professional to work out the details of your project.

what kind of plant is this?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Cor-Ten is especially striking in a dry, desert landscape, providing continuity throughout and adding deep, rich color that doesn't otherwise exist there. More:Lay of the Landscape: Modern Garden StyleLuxuriate in the Calm of a Minimalist Garden
First resort. Winter visitors are arriving in lower elevation communities and passing through the higher places; traffic alone shows this. So, how do you make your own garden feel more likea favorite resort? Create potted plantings that impress during the cold season. Hardier accent plants, such as yucca, Hesperaloe, Nolina and some cacti can take planting in larger containers if kept on the drier side. One can underplant the above using hardy winter annuals, such as dianthus, pansies, kale or petunias. Or add color with year-round foliage to contrast containers. In colder locales be prepared to cover plants during harder freezes.
