FEATURED IMAGE (above): Garden retaining wall with step stile. The retaining wall was installed with the intent of extending the patio space and creating a functioning kitchen garden. The garden itself is a Hugelkultur style garden in which biomass materials are used to build up the substata of the garden. As the biomass material decays it acts as a water reserve for the garden growing above as well as increasing organic material in the soil.
