This is a great design and looks amazing... Credit to Emma Viljoen Holmes and Husband David.


Did I read through...The Retaining Walls at the bottom were constructed from old Palings from a fence ? Hope they last the distance... Because I feel for the next constructors of a Retaining Wall on the property. It seems there would be no machinery access. I would have loved to have given a quote to build the Retaining Walls with Engineered Concrete Sleepers.. The Lasting Factor would be...... a very long time.

Thanks Realcrete, appreciate the comments. Block retaining walls clad with old fence pailings. The old fence pailings have character but certainly no strength! Thanks for stopping by!
