Project Description
Found this lovely idea (on the net...) years ago showing a gentleman first having to totally clear a large area. Then using fair sized blocks, build up a raised wall, later filling with porous soil and topping with pea gravel and tufa rock. The planting area here provides the windy conditions that alpines desire, as well as a few micro climate niches to provide protection for those less resilient.
