    I love what you’ve done in the pictures. I have similar stone walls in my yard but instead of gravel and rock on the ground I converted to turf. I found out that some of the cities (mainly in Maricopa I think..) are giving incentives for converting to low water landscaping. But yeah, the walls helped create a very contrasting and pretty entrance to my front door. Nice work!
