My house is on a hill which I like. There is a good sized level lower yard and a fairly steep step up of about 6 vertical feet to where the hill was leveled for the house. I currently have grass on this hill and it is nightmare to mow! I would like to terrace it down to a couple steps that we can plant flowers in.
I want something that looks nice! I am not thrilled w/ railroad ties which seem to be the classic AK standard. I thought about doing block and then some sort of stucco but not sure how that would do with freeze thaw cycles. Ultimate goal is for a DIY project on the cheap.
