Cor-Ten Steel Retaining Wall
This retaining wall transformed an Oakland Hills client's front yard and driveway as part of a major landscape renovation. Made of Cor-Ten weathering steel, this piece was both decorative and functional. The steel bolted on to a new wooden retaining wall, providing an understated, modern appearance while holding in the top 6" of gravel and mulch. Additional steel landscape edging with welded-on stakes separated the gravel-and-stone walkway from the mulched and planted areas. Designed by Chris Ford, landscape architect.
