Rock Solid

This glorious weather took me out of the dye studio and on to a garden tour. What caught my attention was this retaining wall from filled stones in a mesh grid. The pavers are recycled concrete pavers. Shades of gray?


  1. OOh! OOh! OOOh! This lets me use one of my favorite terms: The walls are made of Gabion baskets.
    Learned that on a nature hike and always wanted to use it in a sentence.

  2. I love that! Thanks, and I don't think that the homeowner knew the term, or she would have said. She and her husband have built some columns of her own, and I might just try that for my yard. It is so cool.
