Would love to do around the pool -multiple levels of rock as a border looks neat and orderly but still natural. Also, many great landscapes at this site!
One purpose of soil is to support roots, Lima says―if you create another way to hold them up, you could even plant shrubs. Along a 40-foot wall, she built a 7-foot frame fronted by marine plywood and corrugated plastic (ridoutplastics.com). She stapled on two layers of synthetic Tuf-Felt (sutherlandfelt.com
