How did you do it? - Nicely done! Is this rock wall using the natural weight of the rock? Or is it using some kind of mortar? Any concerns with drainage? Thx, Tiffany

This is a dry stack wall. No mortar is used. It does have a french drain behind the walls for proper drainage.

I asked this same question on another photo. Thanks for your response! I love the organic forms and tiered garden. Really nice.
