More DIY options. Sometimes homeowners or designers will add holds directly to existing walls, as in the concrete climbing wall shown here. Wells says this method is fine as long are you are confident in your building knowledge and your knowledge of the wall: how deep it is, what it’s made of and what there is to anchor to.

2. Poured concrete walls. For these retaining (and climbing) walls, rough-cut 2-by-4s used to form the poured concrete have left their imprints on the surface. For walls like this, the concrete adopts the grain of the wood, so after it dries and the boards come down, there is an intermingling of elements — a natural wood grain set in solid concrete.

5 Ways to Reduce Gravel Traveling1. Proper installation. “The key is a good strong base and not to put the gravel down too thick. You want to create surface friction against the base to help keep [gravel] in place,” Hammaker says. Reduce traveling further by keeping the gravel level just below the pavers, setting gravel in sand on top of the compacted base rock and using path edging.2. Locking gravel. Rocks with jagged edges lock together to form a firmer base underfoot than rounded stones such as pea gravel.3. Bigger rocks. Larger stones (silver dollar-sized to palm-sized) are usually heavy enough to stay put. 4. Larger pavers. Creating generous landing pads in a pathway, such as those out of poured concrete, reduces the likelihood that you’ll kick pebbles up onto pavers while walking across the path.5. Binding products. There are a number of products on the market that can be poured on top of gravel and, once set, hold the stones in place. They are usually made up of either polyurethane or epoxy solutions and can be purchased from home improvement stores.MoreSee more Houzz home improvement projects10 Stylish Ways to Go With a Contemporary Garden Path
