  25. 25. Stone stairs and retaining wall serve same function as concrete, but much more interesting <ul><li>Photo: Chris Butkovich </li></ul>
  26. 26. The large expanse of retaining wall is softened by the curves. The pergola gives those below a sense of privacy, and some protection from the elements. <ul><li>Photo: Chris Butkovich </li></ul>
  27. 27. Irregular blocks give the feel of a natural stone wall, but is much easier to work with then different sizes of stone. <ul><li>Photo: Chris Butkovich </li></ul>
  28. 28. The walkway and retaining wall are very functional. The curve in the retaining wall gives the area a casual feel, even though the plantings behind are very formal. The two different materials contrast nicely. <ul><li>Photo: Chris Butkovich </li></ul>
  29. 29. The arbors act as a doorway, leading into or out of a room. <ul><li>Photo: Chris Butkovich </li></ul>
