Any details of the construction? - Curious what was used to retain the hill behind the bench?

Yes, there's a wisteria vine that will cover the trellis. It's like a Feeny system.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Sheila Schmitz added this to Houzz Tour: A Little Cottage Grows Up
A plum tree shades the front gravel courtyard, featuring a swoopy ipé bench a landscape designer built as part of an earlier renovation.
Lily Gahagan added this to 50 Great Designs for a Garden Party
A lightweight dining set has its upside too: It's easy to move around to get that right mix of shade and light as the sun travels across the sky. See more of this house.
Amy Renea added this to How to Create an Outdoor Nest
If you have a large tree, you have an almost instant nest in your outside space. The line of most tree branches is an arcing curve — perfect to enclose a space as a ceiling. This tree creates an intimate setting for a dining area, gracefully providing shade and protection from above. The bench continues the line of the tree creating another place to rest. This space is also situated below grade, so it feels somewhat cave-like thanks to the surrounding berms of earth. I could spend hours in this nest!
Becky Harris added this to 21 Patios Ready to Party
"Ladies who enjoy lunch" party. Dappled shade and a relaxed atmosphere create the perfect setting for catching up with friends.
3. Make a statement with a big swoop. Have a steep hillside that's impossible to plant? Use it to your advantage by building in a unique curved bench.See the rest of this house
