Garden wall is done, yay!

I've got 2 yards of dirt coming today. With three giant redwoods on the other side of that wall and nothing but shade, I'm thinking rhododendrons and azaleas are probably my best bet. And somewhere among the shrubs will be the home of Mr. Sea.

What did you use to glue the glass stones on to the wall.
Thanks

I used thinset, Maipei Ultraflex II is the thinset of choice around here. Although, I had two of the stones fall off. I'm hoping they just weren't set in very well, and that it's not going to be an ongoing problem. :-(

But here is a picture with the planter filled in. Soooo nice to have this done. Even though my son helped me with the whole process, landscaping is still backbreaking work. Everything hurts!

Thanks! A nice bi-product is the drip I installed to go with it. Sprayers along the back wall, probably twice the number of emitters than I really needed. But on a hot day I could turn it on, sit on the wall and enjoy a nice misting. LOL
