How to bring some curves??


Greetings!!

Any and all suggestions welcome!!! Trying to come up with an idea to bring some curved lines into this rock box! I've currently pulled the wall down and when I try to come up with how to put it back together again nothing seems right.

I'd like to reuse the brick and I don't think it has to be as high as it was.

Please any suggestions welcome!

Wrong blocks for a curved wall unless you cut everyone.

What program are you using to make those?? I like the tree in the front. The only issue I see with that is the septic tank and bed is right there (I never mentioned that before)

With MAYA soft ware,I prefer to add some ideas on some photos.my intention is to avoid the result is very different from your image and wordy suggests,help you easy read and visual understand a couple of examples of how to tie it all together and great planting combinations and shrubs nice mix and coordinate colors.
Some vine such as mockorange,Halimium x pauanum could cover the septic tank.

I guess as long as there's access to the lids on the tank it would be fine.

I've got the wall complete and am now adding triple mix to the bed. I've got some plants to put in as well. Hope to have it done over the next 2 to 3 days.

Here's the end result... I'm pretty happy with it as it has the curve appeal I was hoping for.

What do you think??
