It is no secret, I did not want a retaining wall but we chose to build a walk-out home. When I saw the men dig the foundation, I knew we would need a wall. I just didn't understand that it would need to be 8 feet tall! The kids think it's a play structure so at least two out of four of us love it, right? I plan to grow something lovely on the wall, to make it prettier. I'm thinking some form of espalier. We'll see.
it is getting taller!
