Step 1: Foundation
Step 2: Posts
We have used metal pipes as posts as well as Juniper limbs. The advantage with the metal is that you can hammer them into the ground quickly. Tree limbs are much cheaper (in our case free), but you have to dig a hole for them. With short retaining walls that are only a couple of feet tall, you can use rebar - cheap and easy to pound into the ground.
Step 3: Bond Beam
The rafters of your roof will be attached to this bond beam.
