Dorms Entryway #2

The dorms area also needed an entryway near the front door steps so this came next.  Here’s a photo of the area after the dirt was dug out:

Next a simple cinder-block retaining wall was built around the deck footings and landscaping fabric was added to keep away weeds from this area:

And finally, the same fabric was added as a top layer:

Here’s a photo of the completed entryway.  I felt very happy with how it turned out:
