Wooded Drystack Retaining Wall

Pennsylvania weather face fieldstone was used to create this serpentine series of dry stack stone retaining walls.  The terraces created by these walls have been planted with a mixture of shrubs, perennials and a few small ornamental trees.

These plantings combined with the attractive lines created by the walls help visually draw the natural woodland toward the lawn and home in a pleasing manner.  Look for another picture of this garden scene taken with some of the plantings in flower!
