Rock wall update - The home stretch

We finished building the wall and the seat, and my husband used the tractor to fill it in with dirt and compost. Now I have to spread it out, water it down and clean up the cement off of the wall. Thank goodness I had the help of my father-in-law who has built many walls. What should have been about an hour took about 6 hours due to rebuilding a side to make the seat level. It is sloped to the topography of the land which makes one side of the wall higher than the other. Then I just have to figure out what I will plant in it, that will probably take longer than the wall!

Great looking wall did you know that Winston Churchill also built walls?

He built them at Chartwell where he lived.

Wizz :-)

The wall looks great, very professional. I have tried to build a few and they never came out nearly this nice. Congratulations.
