I love the walls in so many of your designs. What they made of? - I need a small retaining wall on my new home. I love this look! Is it concrete or stucco? It it water proof? Hope you will share the info? I want something maintenance free but love this look! Help?

It is a "dryvit type" stucco system. The color is mixed into the stucco. The caps are canterra stone. The waterproofing is extremely inportant and is on the rear side of the walls with a french drain. I like to use the sheet type of waterproofing with a hydrodrain system. Hope that helps.
