Before building this retaining wall, you could barely see our plants. Now, it gives them some height & added a little more curb appeal to the front yard. To see more & a quick version of how we created it, go to my blog
Retaining wall built with pavers. The basic steps were to dig out the area & add some sand to level the blocks. Once they were all in place, he added tiny pea gravel to help with drainage & then filled it with topsoil until it was level with the rest of the ground.
