Paving & Garden Wall

Currently looking at getting some work done at the back of the house as the front border is near finished. I am waiting for Michael and Sean to come back to me to put in a load of soil in the corner near the road and we will then finish off the panels to the railway line.

My next plan WAS to get the rest of the lawn done but with the amount of rain we have had over the last week there really is little hope of me getting that done now.

So what I have earmarked to look (and do if its not too mental dear) is to built a 3ft high and probably 40ft long, not sure on the lenght yet but again depending on price I will create a "flower box" wall all along the back. What I am look at is something like this in the pictures below. I am still trying to source where the stone/paving was got but no joy so far.

I suspect it COULD be either tobermore or Archeson so I have enquired about prices. But as I said this could be well shot down if it turns out mental pricey bt it would look well I think.
The paving is more a long term thing, until the shed is done I really can't do all 3 sides of the house but I could probably do along the railway side, along the deck and to the back of the house in line with the back door. Again this is pricing stage but would add a wee bit of character to the back of the house.
Looking at various sites there are loads of good ideas out there which might be of interest.
I will put up a post when I get more details and prices.
