Recycled Retaining Walls Stones April 27, 2015

One of my friends was getting rid of some retaining wall stones from her yard. She is in the process of redoing her yard and had a stack of them for me. So many that it took two truck loads to bring them all to the house. Sadly I did not remember to take pictures because the hand truck bit my head LOL!

Once we got the stones home we lined them up-end to end along the property line dividing our front yard from our neighbors. The plan is to eventually fence in the front yard but in the mean time I want to eliminate the grass. Placing the stones along the line allows me to fill in the bark all the way to the stones.

There are a couple of trees and a rose-bush along the edge which were hard to mow around so now the bark will eliminate that problem too.

I think that it makes a nice break in the yards and has eye-appeal! A few more stones and the edge will be complete.
