ALMOST TO THE TOP
Building a terrace this size takes tremendous energy, stamina, and spiritual stength. And getting to the top is always an exhilarting feeling when you've overcome such a large hillside.


BALANCING THE COLORS
The first stones laid here were by the bench on the right. The last stones were laid on the upper-left. Balance within the wall design and the other colors used in the crushed rock helped to create the theme of alternating blues and grays, which contrast sharply with the black pockets of soil for flowers.



FINISHED STRUCTURE
The view off this ironwood deck is breathtaking and every terrace can be seen: the wall design turned the hill towards the house. A terrace this size requires patience and careful planning to plant, and this homeowner wants to do it all, taking her time to do it right.
