We bought our house a few years ago. The previous owners did a great job of turning the very steep garden into a tiered garden, but there’s a wall they built on the patio area which is massive and not very safe because of how high it is. I’ve wondered about chopping into it to make it into like a big step, then putting plants on the step part. But it’s nice stone so not sure if this would spoil it. Though I suppose that the stone that is removed from the top half would just form the new back wall part of the new step. It would cut into the grass tier above it too but I’m not sure by how much. Maybe 2 or 3 feet. The only other thing I can think of would be to put railings on top but I’m not sure I’d like the look of this.
Has anybody got any ideas on what we could do? I’ve attached a few photos. We’re definitely replacing the wood fencing with proper railings at some point. And I wondered about building a brick wall in front of the nasty looking concrete wall too.
