Unfortunately the client chose this colour and it was quite a few years ago now, but we do remember it being called Aubergine. Hope that helps!

Love the retaining wall, how is it anchored? - I'd like to build a short retaining wall in my yard and this one looks perfect. How is it anchored to the ground? i'm located in Toronto, Canada so usually we need to set footings 4 feet below ground to get below the frost like but that seems like overkill for this application. The ground above the retaining wall is relatively flat.

vertical posts are in the ground as far as they are above the ground.

Was there anything done to the lumber to make it last longer, prevent - Any time I use wood in my yard it rots pretty quickly and I have to replace it. Thanks for any info. Love the rustic look of this.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Falon Land Studio LLC added this to Bring Reclaimed Wood to the Landscape
Rustic retaining walls. This is a standard, simple wooden retaining wall design for a raised planting area in the garden. Wooden uprights are driven into the ground at a depth equal to the height above the ground. Wood timbers are stacked to create the wall, which is topped with another piece of lumber.
