Stone Garden Wall

Notes and Project Description:

Running almost the full width of the backyard, this retaining wall creates a dramatic effect.  It contains a large plant bed filled with shocking pink roses, yellow coreopsis, astilbes, miniature boxwoods, as well as grasses and other perennials. A series of wide stone steps run through the middle of wall, while casual boulder steps wrap around each end. The upper lawn was graded to provide a level play area.

Location: McLean, Virginia
