Mosaic Retaining Wall
This retaining wall was put in when the basement was poured seven years ago.... I've been looking at that ugly concrete wall for too long. I have a plan..... finally I am following thru...
This is my "lovely" retaining wall that is begging for a decorative touch.
Last fall I used a concrete vertical carving mix and got one tree up....
This spring I added more trees.....
Then.... last week I got started on the "picture"..... I used 12" square slate tile for my water. I wanted the tile to lay horizontally and wanted to run them in a brick pattern.... so... each 12" tile got cut into four pieces.....
Next step.... leaves. I found glass tiles that I thought would work great. Just like when mixing patterns I am trying to keep size and scale in mind so now..... what to do with the sky and ground. Hmmmm! I have a couple ideas and am hoping to get something going this week. Winter is quickly approaching and I need to get it completely and sealed.... What do you think so far?
Enjoyed the project?

I love this fence and would like to see the finished project. How can I see it? I want to do something similar on a fence as you drive up my drive.
