I'm a little jealous. I live in a neighborhood with HOA rules that wouldn't let me get away with something this elaborate. I have to tie everything into manicured landscaping format. I wish the rest of America would realize that a 100% grass lawn just isn't that great.

I used to landscape at 3 HOAs in Ohio. Sadly not enough units had been sold so the builder was in charge; they were real sticklers. I colluded with homeowners who sneaked in all sorts of plants. (The restrictions were only front yards or areas visible from the street.) When the needed house to shed the builder at the largest development (280 houses the front yards I weeded biweekly) was sold, the residents began a planting frenzy. Roses, Iris, you name it. I wonder how many of those stupid daylilies are left?

You need to talk to others in your neighborhood--they might feel the same way you do.

The stakes came marching one by one ...

Tomorrow a crew of workers with a lot more stakes will start work on 400 feet of retaining walls around the perimeter of my property. Some of it will be holding soil back -- as shown in the photo, but the majority of it will be holding soil in. There is a 150 foot section in the back yard that will range from 6 to 9 feet high!

Hope you don't run out of energy with all of this, Richard. I'm running out of it myself.

Here are the alignment posts for the lower left corner. These are not structural, but for reference of direction and incline.

Many photos of the retaining wall construction would be appreciated. Post, PM or e-mail. Nine feet of earth is a lot to hold back.

Nope. Those are for alignment only.

In your first pic of your home there was a slope on the street side of the fencing, can you utilize that area too, like for bananas. ..warmth of the street. Etc..

Here's an alternate view of that lower right corner. The retaining wall will be built along the left in the picture up to that corner, and then across to the right. The height at that corner will be about 1 foot short of the existing wooden fence at that corner. The majority of my property is not in this picture, it is to the right and behind the camera.

Yes, the string line at that corner is about 5 feet above the where the new ground level will be. 95' away where it attaches in the right front corner it is only 3' above the existing ground level.
