I usually am a great advocate for building tall walls. In fact the taller the better. Last year we were asked to shorten a section of flat coped wall that I had built continuing along an entrance way to very pretty property. (The rest of the walls were coped.) Yesterday I reluctantly shortened that flat section by about a foot. (I wish I had taken a better before picture.)
To my surprise when I stood back at the end of the day I thought lowering the wall actually improved the look. What do you think?
