1   Pool Project

Do you have aspirations to build a spectacular pool, but no idea how to incorporate it into your sloping backyard? Use this pool from www.minimalisti.com as your inspiration. With a flagstone retaining wall, this pool offers all the advantages of a poolside patio, yet blends with a steeply sloping property.

2   Terraced Retaining Wall

Check out this terraced retaining wall that makes a work of art out of a hillside. The owners have created an awe-inspiring vision by blending trees, walls, and gardens in one flowing movement. If you have an awkward yard you too can rise to the challenge and design something that everyone will remember. This clever idea comes from www.homestratosphere.com.

3   Keeping It Simple

Use retaining walls to create planters in any shape that you want, or that the shape of your property suggests. Here we see simple, curved retaining walls that are topped off by a delightful display of petunias. Use combinations of plants, flowers, and walls to create eye-catching visual effects throughout your property. This is another great idea from www.homestratosphere.com.

4   Height and Depth

Create interest by varying the height and depth of your retaining walls. This wall from www.sunset.com offers just that, creating vertical and horizontal visual appeal as well as a tiered approach to the rows of retaining walls. Consider allowing the flowers to spill over the edges of the wall for a timeless country rock garden style.

5   Dry-Stacked Stone Wall Attraction

Have you ever considered a dry-stacked stone wall for a charming old countryside look? Here’s a beautiful example from www.bhg.com that will leave you longing for years gone by. Notice how the owners have cleverly combined the random appearance of the dry-stack wall with the regulated pattern of the brick patio. A wall like this makes a sensational focal point for any contemporary garden.
