Whether it is for aesthetics, security, or simple privacy, no project is more important to a landscape than its vertical boundary structures--the fences, walls, screens, and retaining wall terraces. This book includes classic favorites, like picket fences and panel fences, but also includes interesting regional variations, likeVirginia split rail fences and dry-fit stone garden walls. Also included here are the latest materials, such as new variations on PVC vinyl and polymer-coated, wrought-iron look-alikes. And special attention is given to decorative boundary walls for patios--the latest trend in today's cutting-edge landscape architecture. Add in major hardscape retaining wall terraces, and even an invisible electronic dog-fence project, and you have the most complete and modern book on fences and garden walls available.

I'm planning a retaining wall project, and I'm very happy with how this book shows the actual work of building a retaining wall.

It does contain less "step back and look at how beautiful this finished project is" full page pictures. "The Ultimate Guide to Walks, Patios, and Walls" (also at OPL) does a better job of that.
