What I did today.
I put down my first set of stone borders that will be next to the driveway. I decided I didn't want my stone retaining walls to be perfectly even and perfectly level. I have looked at hundreds of examples around town from perfectly level (using a level to install) to haphazardly thrown around a tree. I am not down for a perfectly manicured lawn with perfect borders. My yard will always be lived in, just like my house. I like things to look more natural. I have decided to go with the middle of the road and used eye leveling. I also went with some of the natural dips and curves. I did use sand to help with what leveling I did do. I'm happy with the results so far.
