Fixing the Rock Walls
Alas, the sheep and renegade llama did a number on them one season and the dogs and cats over the years knocked rocks around quite a bit.
Mostly, the problem was that in my ignorance, I backed the walls with posts and planks. In 20 years the wood heaved forward, pushing the walls right over.
So. This is the year to re-do them. Lily pulled all the rocks down and removed the wood behind them. Then she reshaped the hill behind the walls so we could fill behind each new wall with gravel. You can see the guide string in the pic below. There are four walls and we are almost done with the third one.
They really make the terrace gardens beautiful.
