Vote on Pic: Segmented RW vs. Stone


*Please vote which you think adds more curb appeal / value at the same cost.*

Notwithstanding other variables/factors (I'm trying to gauge what is better for resale at same cost to me - independent of "get what you'll enjoy as I may sell soon) do you guys think a planter bed around an L-shaped front porch (22' long side, 10' short side) appears more *higher-end* and adds more value with the Segmented Retaining Wall or Ledger Stone (quartzite) panels?

1) This is the panel I'd be using: http://www.pdtravertinepavers.com/na...rra%20blue.jpg , in this sort of setup http://img1.classistatic.com/cps/po/...772lmf_27.jpeg

2) This is the SRW I'd be using: http://www.decorprecast.com/wallDeta...page=oldeManor

This can not be answered without a picture of the house---Post a picture and then you will get some looks and answers.

By the way,I like the Sierra Blue----
