120 foot tufa retaining wall

17 years ago

Hi All!

Thank you so much for all your help, pictures, hints and advice. I got brave this weekend and tackled my first tufa project- a 120 foot retainng wall! I did a tufa face(portland, sand, peat 1:1:2) on an existing cement block wall that was filled with rebar, cement and rocks. All this as practice for my hay bale wall.

Take a look at it & please give me feedback on the "carving" does it look ok? or does it look too fake rock ish? I plan to add colors(if I can ever move again)with coffee & tea tomorrow, and wood stain next week.

Please check it out at:

hope the link works- im new at this posting stuff
