Looks great! What did you put over the big area of landscape fabric in front? Gravel?

Wow, Jenny, that’s absolutely stunning! Makes me wish I had a steep slope somewhere :)

Way to rock Animoto, too :)

(Geez, I’m all smilies and exclamation points – it *must* be good :)

What a fabulous design! And interesting presentation, too.

Thanks, everyone! We actually did this project last spring, but I just now put the video together.
Pam, we mulched that area–we thought about DG but I didn’t want it to wash on the slope.
Julie, we got our hands full already at your place! LOL
Thanks, Linda!

This topic sounded interesting and I was looking forward to seeing your solution. However, I lasted only 15 seconds into the video. I just can’t stand the waste of time video imposes versus reading. When an article is text and photos I can at least scan it as a preview before committing time to it. I guess video is trendy and appeals to the younger generation. Old codger here.

Hi Melissa–thanks for your comments. I try to provide a variety of styles on my blog for my readers to respond to–some posts are photograph-heavy, some have more text, and on occasion I will put up a short video. It’s my hope that there is something for everybody to look at, listen to and learn from.

Looks great Jenny, I especially love the planting. Great guys you have working for you, they did the curves really well. Good job!

Interesting progression…did you mortar the stonework or dry stack it?
Cool video J.
