Eye-Catching Retaining Walls


Add splashes of color to your retaining walls to make them eye-catching. Here, we can't help but admire the Russian sage (Perovskia atriplicifolia) planted in mass, whose purple color is subtly reflected in the stones of the walls, and vividly contrasts with the green plantings of Fountain Grass (Pennisetum alopecuroides) and Catmint 'Walker's Low' (Nepeta racemosa) at the end of its first blooming period. A super blend of perennials and ornamental grasses which softens and enhances this space. Designed by Liquidscapes
