|We are hoping to renovate part of our front garden during the Easter-ANZAC Day break. See the driveway? See the semi-circular curve? All that lies between the curve and the driveway is under consideration. Here is what we are hoping to achieve:|
|Here is the area to be dug out in more detail. Along the front, below the Lily-pily "Cascade" hedge, is a brick retaining wall. In the centre front, this brick retaining wall is 9 courses deep. However, over to the left, below the letter box, only 4 courses are visible. Darren suggests that there are 9 courses all along the front.|
What I want is a retaining wall to go from the top of the driveway down to the scatter of white rocks, and continue down incorporating the rocks. It goes from 850mm at the top (just to the left of the letterbox) to 100mm at the bottom. It will be pinned into the soil beneath the driveway, and be totally visible from the front porch. It must look "decorative".
Here are some examples that I have sourced from the www.
|Here is a retaining wall built by Alastair. He has done a few more since. Ours will be a feature on display so he will take that into account, too. Next, I will look at the rock sculpture for the girls.|
