Build a Retaining Wall Border

Last year I fancied up my front porch by building a

DIY Corner Bench with a Built-in Table (you can find that project here: and a Firewood Rack. This year I decided the rest of the front of my house needs to be spiced up a bit as well. The paint on my house is dark brown with light brown trim and the grass (okay, yes, they are weeds 🙂 ) grows right up to the front of the house. Don’t judge, there are too many oak trees around here to grow grass and plus, California has been in a years’ long drought! So green weeds are what we get! So, I decided to take on a weekend project to fancy it up a bit!
