2nd Look at wall and Terrace

posted; 04/13/06
This is from another angle for the same project as yesterday. Trying out different ways to install a wall that is needed to hold up the new parking area, but at the same time not dominant the entire landscape.

My guess is the wall will be shortened and cut back sooner into the bank-not wrapping all the way around. If we add a step or two at the house we will negate some height in the wall also-an extra step or two is more cost effective to overall budget.

The real question will be will the homeowner go for the idea, and for the suggestion that the wall be done in brick-like the house. We shall see.
