John - Since Herman is going to do the termite treatment next week, my husband and I decided to do something now with the retaining wall we have underneath the deck. Currently it has dirt in it and is supported by wooden logs (done by another owner and been there a long time). Our aim is to have it look more attractive and be a deterrent for any critters and low maintenance. This past weekend we had a run-in with a dumb mother bunny who had her babies in the yard, and our two beagles each had a little bunny in their mouths. We think she may have put her nest in the dirt under the deck (the retaining wall). Anyway, Herman suggested that if we were going to do something with the retaining wall we should do it before his treatment so as to not disturb the ground after he's done. I saw your section on this site about river rocks, and we will probably use some sort of stone/brick in lieu of the wooden logs to support it. Any other suggestions? Thanks again.
