Black Mountain Wildness Taming for a Patio Retainer and a Path Down to the Creek

The forest was amongst us when we started out. We solved privacy in the front yard with 20-30 Rhododendron and Mountain Laurels planted. It is ironic these were needed with the otherwise ever-encroaching jungle. In the backyard, we carved out a patio where there was just a gentle slope. Once again, my favorite thing to do; we leveled out the gentle slope, retained it, and voila- a place to gather. The couple lives on a creek and wanted a safe path down to the creek and along it. There was so much native rock littering the landscape that we used it in the construction of the patio retaining walls.
