Redwood Scrap Wood for Retaining Wall

I asked our miller friend Rick if I could come pick up redwood scraps to finish the front section of a redwood bark retaining wall. They have piles of scrap redwood up at the mill site in Boulder Creek.

Yesterday I was able to finish this portion of the wall up on Honey Hill (tier 3).

I use the thinner pieces to cover the seams between the larger bark pieces. I like this method of turning the large bark inward towards the hill so I can level as much as possible without having to put each piece through the table saw. Then, I can hide the uneven seams with the thinner bark. It’s a nice look and matches the same style fence that we built in the horse coral.

This evening, I went back and picked up more wood because they are cleaning up the site. I’m so thankful I got the call and can definitely use all this wood. I guess this means…..more projects!!!
