Project Melrose: Finished Retaining Wall 100' x 20'
It wasn't always this pretty!
The original wall, shown to the left,
collapsed at midpoint and needed to be rebuilt.
A proper drainage system is now in place.
The construction phase after the foundation work has been completed.

The first several courses of boulders are set in place.
This wall is constructed with mortar, but many walls are dry set.
The wall progresses row by row.

A thing of beauty!
