Looking for a unique design element for your landscape? This stone wall will add beauty and function.
I have a sloping front yard and for years I wanted to put in a retaining wall but there was always something else that needed to be done. I decided this year the wall was going at the top of the list.
Start by removing any plants where you wall will be placed.
To make the wall level, began at the top of the slope which for us this was at the walkway to our front door. Put a stick into the ground and run a piece of string from the top of the slop to the point at the bottom of the slope where you want to place the wall.
At the bottom of the slope using another stick, mark where one post would be placed and attach the string to this stick.
Place a string level on the string to find the point where it was level from the top of the slope to the bottom.
Our posts were 4' apart. Mark each post spot with another stick and run a string from stick to stick to find the level measurement.
Measure and cut each post.
Dig 12" holes for each post and add paver base or crushed stone to the bottom of the hole.
Place the post in the hole and fill it with crushed stone 3/4 of the way up.
Using a larger level, make sure the post was straight and pack the stone around each post.
Dig the next post hole 12" deep and add crushed stone. Place the post into the ground and using the first post as a guide, the second post is leveled using string and a string level. Continue to level each post in this manner.
After each post was set and the holes are filled with crushed stone, place quick setting concrete into each hole. Fast setting concrete is really easy to use. You dump the dry concrete into the hole, pack it down and spray water on top.

The first step in creating a relaxation corner in your garden is to carefully choose the location. Find a quiet and secluded area where you can escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Whether it's under the shade of a tree, nestled in a corner with tall plants for privacy, or near the soothing sound of a water feature, the right spot sets the tone for your oasis. Take into account the natural elements such as sunlight and wind direction to enhance the overall experience.
