All walls not the same

Let council know we’re OK with spending a little more for a retaining wall that’s both efficient and attractive

I understand Kaila Hald’s concern (Letters, May 15) about concrete retaining walls, but concrete needn’t be ugly.

For examples, check out online images of the San Tomas Aquino/Saratoga Creek Trail in Santa Clara, Calif. As council grapples with finding the best solution for our waterfront, perhaps our best option is to let them know we’re OK with spending a little more for a retaining wall that’s both efficient and attractive.
