First drystone retaining wall

It's only a small one, but it's still our first drystone retaining wall. No mortar, no bluestone or roadbase. Just the rocks we collected around the property as we were shifting dirt around. The most satisfying part about this project is that it was first of all, free - bust secondly utilising a resource already existing on the property so there was no fuel consumed in delivery.

We dug this out to build three future compost bins from leftover wooden pallets. We need to clean up the yard a lot, both with foliage and debris but also the materials we have collected for future projects. It's starting to look a bit like a junkyard, so it's time to get busy!
