What Houzz contributors are saying:
Halt a hillside. Sloping properties come with the challenge of reclaiming enough usable flat space to make outdoor living practical. Since retaining walls tend to be highly visible, and often massive, take care to select materials that harmonize with the other built elements.Natural fieldstone or river rock walls are a logical complement to a patio fashioned from irregular flagstone slabs. Taller retaining walls that require building permits and an engineer’s stamp are frequently built of concrete block, not the sexiest material to border your dining terrace, but their utilitarian appearance can be glammed up with a veneer of stone, brick or tile, or by coating it with colored or textured stucco or plaster.
