This residential setting had a rear yard that was approximately 90 ft across with a solid 5 ft front to back along with rear of the property. The entire stretch of property line was overgrown and in need of serious landscaping to say the least. We removed all the debris within the hill and installed a decorative retaining wall with a seat on top to add more space to the yard. The retaining wall, having two distinct heights adds interest and the center bed becomes a focal point of color throughout the season.
